I began armour for hypothyroid 2 weeks ago. Already feeling better! At the same time, wierd rash, non itchy, no redness but looks like flesh color.

Does hypothyroidism untreated cause a maculopapular rash? Can it be itchy?

Does hypothyroidism untreated cause a maculopapular rash? Can it be itchy?

Maybe (not). . .: Hypothyroidism isn't usually my first thought when someone complains of a maculopapular rash although underactive thyroid has been linked to various rashes. Instead, loss of energy, undesired weight gain, inability to lose weight, cloudy thinking, depression, constipation, etc make me think more of hypothyroidism. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/hypothyroidism/ds00353 for more info.

But hypothyroid symptoms is rashes. And itchy head and back pain and I got all that?

I'm not 100% clear?: On what it is that you would like to know, but I think you are concerned that your itching and back pain are potentially related to hypothyroidism. That is a legitimate concern if your hair is especially thin and brittle, if you have very dry skin, and if your depressive symptoms have worsened despite medication. Consitpation, fatigue and weight gain are also symptoms. Ask UR Doc about testing.

My wife had graves disease but is now hypothyroid. Synthroid (thyroxine) has helped her, but she feels itchy and a bit hyper. She only started two weeks ago. Should she take less?

My wife had graves disease but is now hypothyroid. Synthroid (thyroxine) has helped her, but she feels itchy and a bit hyper. She only started two weeks ago. Should she take less?

Probably: Sounds like she may need to be on less synthroid, (thyroxine) but she should make an appointment with her physician first who can check blood levels and talk to her about her symptoms.

Have itchy skin. 2 biopsies with lymphocyte infiltrate no T cell lymphoma. Ana was 640. Could it be autoamune. Have Hypothyroid.?

It could be: If your hypothyroidism is related to an autoimmune disorder, then your skin problem may be as well - guilty by association. Make sure that you have not become allergic to one of the medications you have been taking. There are several options on treatment and I suggest that you consult a dermatologist, a 2nd opinion if needed.

Hypothyroidism: Your symptoms are not typical of hypothyroidism but are more consistent with hyperthyroidism (overactive). Have a complete thyroid panel done rather than one test done to be sure. An endocrinologist or thyroidologist are experts in the field of thyroid disorders.
