In brief: Treat only if

In general, thyroiditis only requires treatment when the thryoid gland is either overactive or underactive.
The treatments for the two are completely different, so it would depend on what you have. More information, please. Thanks.

In brief: It depends...

...On the type of thyroiditis.
If you have "hashimoto's thyroiditis" then only thyroid hormone to correct hypothyroidism if present is necessary. If you have subacute thyroiditis, then Ibuprofen may be given to help the pain, and, in some severe cases, prednisone.

In brief: Iodine + bromelain

Treat with iodine supplement after using xenodetox that has kelp.
Acute iodine shortage in body and thyroid trying to use chloride, floride or bromide instead causing inflammation - supplement with iodine while also managing pain with bromelain - monitor your thyroid levels.
