Probably not: Both are common. Links between flareups of the two remain anecdotal. If you are treated with iodine for your hyperthyroidism, i've heard that it may exacerbate acne. It's really important that you get the thyroid disease treated effectively, as it's a life-ruiner otherwise. Acne's very treatable as well. Good luck.
