EAN 2023 | Managing skin complications from PD treatment

Matej Skorvanek, MD, PhD, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University, Košice, Slovakia, discusses the skin-related side effects associated with Parkinson’s disease (PD) treatment. Managing these skin issues can be challenging, but it’s essential for patient well-being. Allergic reactions to patches are relatively common. Additionally, advanced therapies like pumps can lead to skin issues, such as inflammation, infections around the pump insertion site, and skin erosion, particularly around neurostimulators. Educating patients on skin care, what to avoid, and how to treat their skin is crucial. This interview took place at the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 Congress in Budapest, Hungary.
