I recently discoverd randomly that I have an overactive thyroid and was wondering if maybe thyroid problems cause acne? Does anybody know if it does? I'm planing on seeing a specialist soon. Has thyroid medicine helped clear anybody up?

Overactive thyroid can cause acne in some people. My Aunt recently was diagnosed with Over-active and she's been complaining for a year about breaking out at age 47! (She had a hysterectomy, so not menopause related). Her doctor told her it was her thyroid doing it. The acne also doesn't tend to heal very fast either. So your assumption may be correct.
