Do People With Dementia Or Alzheimers Suffer From Constant Itching?

Answer

Hi Paula,

Constant, (constant being the important work) itching is not common may indicate that there may be a medical problem besides Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.

I think it would be good to get him/her checked out by a doctor. Medications, liver disease, kidney and skin diseases are just a few possible causes.

Best Wishes

Christine
