Hello. Brand new here. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos a month ago, even though I have had autoimmune disorder symptoms for about 3 years. Since diagnosis, I started taking Levothyroxine. I also have eaten a strict anti-inflammatory diet with no refined sugars, processed foods, nor dairy. I drink so much water, but I always have. I also work out a few times a week. I seem to be dealing with hormonal acne despite a healthy lifestyle. Thinking it could be that the meds are trying to balance my thyroid levels, which could cause this? Has anyone else with a similar diagnosis had any issues with this? If so, ant suggestions?

One user mentioned that they had pretty bad acne several years before their Hashimoto's diagnosis and found relief with a medication called spironolactone. Another user shared that taking a probiotic helped with their acne. A third user experienced dry, flaky skin and cracked lips when their thyroid was out of balance and suggested using moisturizer until the thyroid is balanced. It might be beneficial to consult with a dermatologist or your primary care provider about these symptoms.
