Hi, I've tried searching old posts on this since 2am without success ... I'm hypothyroid and have come down with a head cold - my first since being diagnosed and taking thyroid meds.
Over the last 24 hours have started to get itchy - initially it was my face and eyes and now it's everywhere. I've been taking cold and flu tablets for the last couple of days (lemsip all in one cold and flu - I'm new to all this and hadn't cottoned on to that being a no no and I didn't spot anything in the leaflet about thyroid issues). Antihistamine hasn't helped.
Anyone else had this issue / got any thoughts on what might be triggering it / got hints on what to try to get the itching to ease off?
I'm not sure if any of the following is relevant ... I'm on 100mg Levothyroxine, last bloods TSH was "in range"at 3. I have apparently got a low white blood cell count / low immune system but doctor won't test for hashimotos as he says I haven't got the relevant symptoms (I'm not sure I agree, he has referred me to a haematologist in a couple of months).
Thanks in advance!
