itchy neck/throat
I have an underactive thyroid which was diagnosed about a year ago. Although i have had the symptons for many years and have been to my gp many times, my gp failed to diagnose. i am currently taking 100 micrograms of levothyroxine tablet daily ( i have had up to 150 mg daily ).

However, for many years, i have had a problem with my throat/neck. It continously itches in my throat and  on my neck as well, basically in the same place inside out. I take antihystermies and moisturise as much as possible to stop myself from scratching all the time. As a result, my neck is turning a darker shade as result of the continous scratching.

I would also like to add that i do not wear any jewellery/perfume around my neck because i though that it might have contributed to my problem.

I thought that this problem might have been as a result of the thyroid and have discussed this with my gp many a time but he shrugs it off as 'nothing' but it is bothering me a lot and i tend to cover up as lot with make up to hide it.

What can be the cause of this ittchiness?? Is it related to thyroid?  I have read your pages on thyroid and have not found anything on this subject.

Please help
