Relief from Hives Caused by Thyroid Imbalance?
I broke out in hives 2 weeks ago, probably triggered by horrible mold allergies and Graves. I've been diagnosed with Graves over 7 months ago and am on a low dose of Methimazole. I am pretty sure the hives are caused by low FT4 and FT3 levels as per last month's bloodwork (borderline hypo now!).
I start breaking out first thing in the morning as I'm getting ready for the day and they randomly come & go pretty quickly, within an hour at best. They are pretty much all over my body, head to toe but spared most of my face, thank goodness.
My question is, what are some things that helped you if you have experienced this before? So far, I have decreased my medicine dosage down to 1.25/day 3 weeks ago and am getting acupuncture tomorrow. Any suggestions, experiences, etc. would be much appreciated!
