British experts say Dandruff could be a symptom of Parkinson’s disease

Published on

Scalp problems have been included in the list of non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

According to British scientists, there are a host of ‘non-motor’ symptoms associated with the neurodegenerative disorder, and dandruff is one of them..

As noted by experts from the British Society for the Study of Parkinson’s disease, this disease can also cause a range of non-movement symptoms, commonly referred to as “non-motor” symptoms.

In a mild form, it manifests itself in the form of dandruff, and in a severe form, the scalp becomes red and scaly, in rare cases, a weeping rash may occur.

“In more severe cases, people may have a red, scaly scalp, sometimes with a weeping rash,” say the experts.

The reason why seborrheic dermatitis affects patients with Parkinson’s disease is not yet known to scientists.

It was previously reported that malfunctioning Wnt proteins are the main cause of Parkinson’s disease.

Seborrheic dermatitis is an inflammatory disease that affects the areas of the scalp and trunk where the sebaceous glands are developed. 

Parkinson’s disease is a slowly progressive degenerative disease of the central nervous system, which is manifested by movement disorders, muscle stiffness, and resting tremors.
