    Depends on the thyroid disease you have. The most common, and I would guess, that you have Grave's disease. It is an autoimmune disease which means your body seems to think of itself as "foriegn" and may attack it. Those with 1 Autoimmune disease tend to have other's as well which may be the cause of your rash. I would see a Dr in your case. If you are a Female in her 20-40s, this is a highest risk group for having autoimmune dz.

    You have not said if your condition is over or under active.

    Look on the net, there is tons of info.

    Thyroid problems can be alliviated by exercise, & high vitamin & minerals & improving your imune system by healthy eating (+lots of apples & onions) & addressing any problems that are causing stress. Sort it, or hand it over, or forget it is the way to try & go!

    Lavender oil helps (not lavindin) rashes topically.

    The thyroid is associated with the immune system. The rash is a symptom of an allergy or pathogen. An allergy could be to any protein or chemical at toxic levels, and the pathogen could be a parasite, bacteria, virus, or fungus. Go here:

    Do you have a high protein diet?

    Do you dring tap water?

    I use this and it works great!

    Tell me where to send an mp3 on curing thyroid disease if you are interested.

    Good luck.
