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.
