I've recently started self medicating with NDT. I've slowly increased the doses 1/4 grain at a time, 6 weeks per dose. I'm now on .75 since last week. For the past 3 weeks or so, I've developed itchy, red spots on my cheeks. Sometimes they feel a bit like burning. I thought it was my period, but as its been and gone, yet the skin is getting worse, I wonder if it is something else? Googling around, it looks a bit like rosacea. They seem contained on my cheeks, initially just the "apples", but they've now appeared all the way down to the jaw line, but nothing on the rest of my face (nose, forehead, chin), also, little veins look rather red (almost like varicose veins) so fingers crossed it does not look like lupus (you can tell I've been googling a lot!).
Has anyone experienced this? How can you make it better?
I don't think it would be worth it going to the GP. If they've ignored the worst symptoms of hypo, why would they care about red skin, so I trust the advice and experience of people in this forum a lot more!
