williamnation [post no 6] reports, "I have been taking levothyroxine 125 mcg/day and have the same problem."

armabella [post no 1[ wrote, "After a year of taking the natural substitue, tests didn't look to good so she went back on the levothyroxine drug and this is when her Rosacea started."

Eclara [post no 1] says, "I also recently switched from levothyroxine to Armour thyroid for my hypothyroidism, which I believe made a difference as well."

CHILLYK reports, "I have an underactive thyroid, diagnosed about 4-5 yrs ago, now taking 150mcg Levothyroxine daily....In the last 2 weeks my cheeks have become redder and redder, my skin is burning and tingling....I am flushing a lot and my cheeks feel hot, I'm getting myself upset which is probably making things worse."
