Before starting levothyroxine I had horrible chapped lips. As in, nothing would help the nonstop peeling. I still have dry skin despite the minor improvements and have dealt with dry scalp for nearly a year. Is this a symptom that’s very common with hypothyroidism, or should I assume that this is something different? Also, maybe some dry skin / scalp product recommendations?
yeahh i still have terribly dry skin. i try to moisturize everyday and i dont really use a specific shampoo for my dry scalp but i try to avoid any hair product with tea tree oil in it because that makes my skin super flakey
I use raw coconut oil on really dry spots, it seems to work pretty good. Especially if you use it right out of the shower or bath
I have a hard time getting myself to moisturize daily. I started using in-shower water-activated lotion and I'm not saying it's super helpful for moisturizing but I will say I'm moisturizing now when I wasn't consistent before.
To be blunt, it feels like everything is a symptom of hypothyroidism 😆
I get a hardcore dry scalp too. Good meds really are what helps the most. It disappears for me when my dosage is correct.
