is a this a symptom of thyroid disorder?

i'm just curious if a red nose can be a symptom of hyperthyroidism? my nose gets red and irritated when i get hot, uncomfortable or tired it also seems swollen and cooling down is all that makes it go away. i know its not allergies. any help would be appreciated.

Re: is a this a symptom of thyroid disorder?

Welcome disclosure. Actually, a "ruddy" or reddish complexion is a symptom of thyroid disease, but typically is associated with low thyroid function rather than hyper. Your nose may be a symptom of something, or it may just be a way your body uses to cool you off. (There are many blood vessels in the nose, so they dilate when we're warm).

Do you have any other symptoms? Read through our symptoms lists on the Info Archive and see if anything sounds familiar.
