Can Synthroid cause Rosacia?
I started on Synthroid 3 months ago and have had the worst rosacia symptoms every since then. I didn't make the connection at first. But, I seriously look like I have the measles. I am covering my face with thicker makeup to help tone it down...but it doesn't cover bumps. Nothing topical is helping. Although, Apple Cider Vinegar helped initially (I read that some folks were having great results treating rosacia with vinegar). It's bad again. I've never had it this bad. Then, I looked back and it's exactly when I started treatment for my Hoshimotos. Is there any help? I look terrible and have a client facing job.

Hi, you've probably already figured this out by now, but I'll go ahead and reply anyway just in case. I don't know about Rosacea. but Synthroid contains both acacia and lactose, two things that you could possibly be allergic to, hence the skin problems. If you can afford it, schedule for an allergen test, but if you can't afford it, talk to your doc about switching to a thyroid med that doesn't contain either of those ingredients. Best of luck to you.
