#3158361 synthroid is causing my breakouts

Posted by cinnamon_stix on 13 September 2011 - 07:04 PM

All this time I thought smoking was the cause of my acne flare up when it has nothing to do with it. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was given 50 mcg of synthroid. Since starting synthroid my skin has been breaking out, and severly red and sensitive. I can't put any products on my face without my skin starting to burn. I recently read posts on other sites about people who have experienced the same thing..breakouts, and sensitivity. Now I know why my face looks so bad. Im so torn apart because synthroid changed my life. It helped me loose all the weight I abnormally gained so now im back to normal weight, my moods are better, I sleep better..but im so depressed because now I have to choose between clear skin and being fat and depressed...or having acne with stable moods and weight. Please, any advice would help because I don't know what to do.
