Hello
I understand the situation.
What is the question?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The question is what is the possible cause of these symptons#


 

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
That is unclear.

Tremor and rash don't really relate.

Has she had any work up at all...and testing?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

she hasnt been tested specifically for this -no. she claims its anxiety, but i want to eliminate Parkinsons what do you think?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
I do not think a 15 year old is going to have parkinson's.
Not at all.
Maybe a 50 year old, but even that would be young.

No, probably anxiety.


However, a persistent rash should be sent to the lab, a sample, to rule out allergy, infection, autoimmune disease....etc.
