Suggest treatment for Parkinsons disease

My husband has Parkinsons Disease--is 86---he has red spots on his arms and face --more like red splotches--some darker in color than others. He now has some on his face. Syphilis has been ruled out. And the red spots are getting progressively worse. These splotches started slowly approximately 18 months ago and have not had any treatment or diagnosis.
