hypothyroidism and rosacea

I have hypothyroidism and rosacea. The Levoxyl made the redness and flushing worse (actually I did not even know I had rosacea until I started taking the Levoxyl). I stopped taking it and the flushing calmed down. But, the hypothyroid symptoms got worse. So, my Dr. wanted me to try Synthroid. This made the flushing come back with nodules on my nose and small bumps on the rest of my face. So, I have stopped taking that, but now I have all the hypothyroid symptoms as before plus a constant feeling of a lump in my throat. Was wondering if anyone else has rosacea and Hypothyroid and if you have found a medicine that does not flare up your rosacea.

Re: hypothyroidism and rosacea

I have rosacea also. I never tied to two together, but if I look back the rosacea did appear when I started the synthroid. Mine is only really visible in the cold weather and with this last bump up in synthroid it has gotten worse, hmmmm.

Re: hypothyroidism and rosacea

I have searched for a different medicine to take, but it seems that they all have flushing as a side effect. I am guessing that I was an easy flusher to begin with and then the meds made me just flush constantly. I am just so frustrated with the whole thing. Just wish I could find a solution.
