One of the most common misconceptions people have is that all hormones are regulated by one organ. In fact you have a whole system of organs that work together to control all your hormones (there are hundreds). Your thyroid regulates some growth and metabolic hormones... there's research that suggests a strong link between metabolic hormones and acne, but I think that's a little complicated for a message board discussion.

Anyway, if you destroy a link in the chain there's a better chance for the ball to drop. So yes, a thyroid problem could potentially affect acne, though how is a bigger question.
