Thyroid and rosacea

Common Questions and Answers about Thyroid and rosacea


Avatar n tn She said that it's rosacea. I have some hair loss which is due to my low thyroid. I had an ANA test which came back negative. My cheeks don't have any pimples on them and the redness is flat and feels warm. I'm scared that it could be a malar rash but my dermatologist said it's not. Also, my eyes are irritated and red. Can somone please help me who knows the difference between the two?
Avatar n tn I have a low thyroid and I was told those were symptoms of my hypothyroidism. My question is the redness of my face is flat, on both cheeks, and doesn't have acne on it. I don't think that's a symptom of hypothyroidism. I'm scared it could be a lupus malar rash. I had an ANA antibody test a couple of months ago and it was negative. I'm driving myself completely crazy because when I look at the pictures online both the lupus butterfly rash and rosacea look the same.
Avatar n tn I have hypothyroidism and rosacea. My doc started me on levoxyl about 3 years ago. Within about 2 months, I was diagnosed with Rosacea. I finally made the connection about 1 year ago that maybe it was the levoxyl making my face so red, so I stopped taking it. And sure enough my face stopped being so red. But, I really need the thyroid meds so my doc had me take synthroid, this made my face red again with little bumps this time.
Avatar m tn During Tx I got Rosacea, now I know that before Tx I had Seborea and during the Tx it gor worsen and I got Rosacea, the Rosacea during Tx was much more severe then it is now. Rozex doesn't help, many times I have redness on the T zone on my face, the only thing that help is a little bit Elidel. Does anyone here familiar with that, I mean - to get Rosacea during Tx, does it become better after Tx ? Is it curable? Any experience with Elidel or any other medication for Rosacea ?
Avatar f tn I don't hang out with my friends anymore or do fun things. I'm just sitting on my couch watching Netflix and googling on hair loss and thyroid problems. I even went gluten free, which is ok, I feel no need in indulging in great foods anyways, I just keep it simple. When I don't have my kids, I mainly just make curry chicken and cooked spinach, just to get protein and iron. Yea, I have about a third left of my hair compared to how it was earlier this year. My scalp shines through.
Avatar n tn I am 54 years old and recently had my thyroid removed due to cancer. Could my Synthroid meds be aggravating this condition. Could these blisters be facial herpes, shingles. I have had this for about 6 months. I can't get into a dermatologist until September. Help!
Avatar m tn gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001396/ An alternative diagnosis or perhaps something you may also be dealing with would be a combination of Diverticulitis (causing the lower abdominal pain and nausea) and Rosacea (pimply rash brought on by stress). If I were you I would get checked for this as well, but it really does sound like the first one. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar m tn Many people with this skin condition have a family history of rosacea. There may be some relationship between rosacea and Helicobacter pylori bacteria, which causes an infection in the gastrointestinal tract, although studies are unclear.
Avatar m tn Correct test for thyroid function is FT3 and FT4, not just TSH, as these reflect available thyroid hormone (not T3 and T4). I would be very interested to see her FT3/FT4 resutls. My bets are on for PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), Hypothyroid and Celiac. Please let us know how she goes and what you think.
Avatar f tn I'll ask my doctor about the meds in my next appointment. Do you recommend a certain medication? Actually I have both acne and rosacea. Also after reading some of the common symptoms I discovered I have two more: constant joint pain(which i usually ignored) and dry skin.
715342 tn?1229821379 I had my gal bladder removed in July of this year due to excessive stones I have fibroids and have had them since my early twenties I have rosacea I have been diagnosed with ankylosis spondylitis With all of this said, what should I do? My doctor is telling me I'm "normal" and doesn't seem to want to figure out what is going on with me. I've asked for a referral to a endocrinologists, but haven't been given that yet. Am I overreacting or should I take these signs seriously?
Avatar f tn Now I am 28 years old and have been fighting to get my T3, T4, and TSH in normal range for several years. My TSH is currently 0.02. According to my doctor my T3 and T4 are within normal range but are on the lowest end of the acceptable range. Also, my face and hands get hot and red. I was diagnosed with raynauds about my hands but my face (including my nose) is often very red...about five shades darker than my neck or the rest of my body. What is this?
Avatar f tn 3) and have the same kind of extreme photosensitivity and facial rash. The dermatologist I went to specifically stated that this was Rosacea and also a side-effect of my skin being more permiable than most peoples because of the connective-tissue disorder. It is considered to act like an Auto-immune disorder but doesn't show up on ANA (mine is always negative when they check).
Avatar m tn My PCP felt the TCN was causeing low vitamen D and Thyroid readings on my blood test so that is why we tryed lowering the dose- the Vitamen D and thyroid is good now but infections more common. I have appoinments to get them all working together maybe a smaller dose taken regularly is the answer .
Avatar f tn ) Her eyes don't seem particulary dry now that she avoids Benzalkonium Chloride, The lubricants and plugs didn't help.She flushes badly and can't tolerate heat, and is very sensitive to perfumes and finds it difficult to go into shops without reacting. Could this be Ocular Rosacea? She also has a problem with her inner cheeks, sometimes they swell so much that she cannot always eat or clean her teeth. She had a cyst removed from her tonsil for histology, which showed Lympoid Hyperplasia.
Avatar f tn Her thyroid had grown throughout her neck and into her chest. But my thyroid scan came up as normal size and no nodules. I read about the Wolff-Chaikoff effect after reading what you wrote - so trying to piece it together make me think that iodine pill they gave me made me feel awesome by about 4 hours after ingestion. that is when I felt the best. By the next day when they did the 24 hour uptake scan I was feeling lousy again.
Avatar m tn I can get western blot testing done but for some reason I am very scared to do it thinking what would I do if I get positive results… Last 6 months have been terrible in my life with various conditions coming into picture... Seborrheic dermatitis, Rosacea, B12 deficiency, thyroid levels gradually increasing, tinnitus, sinus, pulsating headaches etc... I am still on depression medication.
Avatar n tn I am a black woman who was diagnosed with rosacea and I think I also have hypothyroidism but my doctor will not diagnose the thyroid condition. My question is can blacks get rosacea and is rosacea a symptom of hypothyroidism?
Avatar n tn She was deliberating between the cholesteral medicine and the thyroid medicine and chose to up the thyroid medicine as I think she wants to make sure that my mood and energy aren't compromised because of being low on thyroid. I have had excessive sweating and a little of the scratchy face before either of those last 2 changes, however, but now it is worse. My face feels raw and is a little blotchy and sometimes my nose really itches.
4274823 tn?1388532698 Why is it that conventional doctors and labs seem so ill equipped to carefully diagnose and treat patients with thyroid disorders?
434278 tn?1324709825 i have been dealing with alot of the samo symptoms and you may have seen my posts first off i would also recommend seeing a chiropractor and make sure your spine is in proper aligment since you mention alot of nerve type pain i would see an endocrinologist my ANA was elevated and they suspected artheritis or an auto immune AKA Hashimoto thyroiditis i choked on bacon almost died and the ENT found the goitor soo i have all the sympptoms of hypo thyroid and the first endo said your normal thyro

Yes i've had a serious anxiety prob before tis where i thought i had certain things and it turned out untrue. however, am on anxiety med which my rheum gave me. the depression almost left but symptoms remain. am a med student so its hard not to diagnose myself.but i know its wrong.
Avatar f tn Diagnosed with Hashis in December while investigating GI issues (elevated ANA, CRP, and anti-thyroid antibodies), and I stopped feeling so cold after 6 weeks on levothyroxine. No change in bowel habits whatsoever. Recurrent yeast infection (treated 7 times in 9 months) New symptoms as of January: increasing joint pain especially in my hands, and sometimes elbows. I often wake up feeling tired.
Avatar f tn I have pretty much never been completely well and struggle with a lot of other mild health issues (IBS, rosacea, vulvodynia, asthma), severe anxiety and depression, insomnia and near-incapacitating brain fog. I also seem to have a bad sensitivity to the sun on my face and eyes. This could be the rosacea but it seems strange as it's not really that severe of a case. I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2013 but it mostly went away as the SIBO improved.
Avatar n tn If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
505363 tn?1211210560 i suspected yesterday that i have the hepatic encephalopathy, because i've had insomnia for about a week, and fatigue and brain fog. today i waited too long to eat breakfast, so i lied in bed for an hour or two afterward because i was too weak to want to get up at all. it's also a very long story how i got diagnosed and how i got worse lately. and i have raynaud's disease and my fingers are absolutely freezing for some reason, and the heat is off for the summer already here.
Avatar f tn i wish it were true. but u have ur thyroid problem too...and i feel sad cuz of that. on a related note, i've been taking herbs for 3 months. i havent gotten a flu since, even tho my entire family has several times.
Avatar n tn Before considering accutane patients should try oral oxytetracycline which is effective at clearing many types of acne including rosacea and peri-oral dermatitis. Repeat prescriptions may be required for as long as the patient is prone to acne. Dermatologists have found the most effective topical acne lotion to be Differin, especially when used in conjunction with oral treatment. Female patients should also try Dianette, an anti-androgen birth control pill which clears acne.
Avatar m tn Not just the TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test which can come back normal with hypothyroidism. TSH, free T3, free T4, and thyroid antibodies TPOAb and TgAb. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (autoimmune hypothyroidism). Rosacea is a skin problem that causes a redness of the skin, including the cheeks and nose, or the forehead and chin and is linked to hypothyroidism. Symptoms of hypothyroidism will disappear when optimally treated.
