Has Anyone Found A Connection Between Levothyroxine Medication For Low Thyroid And A Psoriasis Flare?

Has Anyone Found A Connection Between Levothyroxine Medication For Low Thyroid And A Psoriasis Flare?

My psoriasis has gotten very bad and is spreading since I began taking this medication. The creams aren’t helping at all. Has anyone else found a connection?

My Endocrinologist said a lot of hypo thyroid patients will develop psoriasis and Some will develop PA

I have been taking Levo for 4 years and have just developed psoriasis in the last 6 month. This was also about the same time I got my last Covid booster. Don’t know if it has any connection or not.

Thank you, Pamela. That is such useful information for me. I suspect that my psoriasis began the same time I started taking Levothyroxine for my low thyroid.

It is so difficult to find connections/causes of developing psoriasis. How bad is your psoriasis? Are you able to control it with creams and topical lotions? Nothing seems to help mine. I had a Covid booster without any problems or symptoms of psoriasis. Sounds like you took Levo for 4 years without developing Psoriasis which is encouraging to me. My doctor has taken me off Levo for 6 weeks to see if rashes/psoriasis clears up. We shall see what happens.
