I had my thyroid removed 11 years ago. I am taking 100 mcg synthroid. My scalp has developed raised, dry, and itchy areas. I have tried the shampoos and the scalp treatments but they are not working. I even tried lice shampoo thinking it might be that but it did not improve. I have had relatively few problems since the removal, other than some difficulty regulating the dose of medication. I just had all my labs checked and they are good. Sure hope this isn't going to stick around forever. I do have very dry skin and use Eucerin cream after each shower and it is GREAT.
