Easy to explain: It makes you sweat more and move less while sleeping. I'm glad you're eager to make a change. You're still young and probably vigorous. Head down to the local gym or sports center, let others see that you're working hard on your body, and they'll accept you as a friend and support you in your body transformation. A lot more is at stake than just the skin in your groin and neck. Best wishes. ...Read more

Male 58yrs. Blood test 12 months ago showed underactive thyroid. Been taking Kelp (675mcg per day) have developed a facial/neck rash. Kelp induced?

Male 58yrs. Blood test 12 months ago showed underactive thyroid. Been taking Kelp (675mcg per day) have developed a facial/neck rash. Kelp induced?

Kelp doesn't help: Hi. Kelp doesn't help any form of hypothyroidism except iodine deficiency; iodine deficiency is non-existent in the modern world. So you're doing nothing to help your hypothyroidism by taking kelp. Assuming the diagnosis of hypothyroidism is correct, stop the kelp and thane the thyroid hormone your doctor would have prescribed based on the labs showing hypothyroidism. Good luck! ...Read more

Why do so many doctors treat symptoms and causes? E.G. Had neck rash so pcp prescribes steroid cream// cause:sertraline solution: get off sertraline

Medicine is complex: Medicine is complex, and a diagnosis is always an educated guess. Symptoms and the environment they arise in are clues to what is (or is not) wrong, but there are many possible causes to any symptom. Drug rashes rarely appear on the neck alone where contact dermatitis often does, the timing of the rash might have been a clue that it was a drug reaction, but it would have been a stretch. ...Read more
