Yes, yes, yes! I had the same kind of rash on my hands, and then eventually under my arms before being diagnosed with Graves and for a while afterwards.
As a matter of fact, the rash is what finally sent me to my doctor after ignoring all the hyperactive thyroid symptoms for months.
So, it may not be in your head. No doctor has ever explained the connection, but it is my personal feeling that they are connected.
Good luck to you. Hope the endo can help.
I have a rsh pop up too every now and then for a few days...like an excema type thing.
I suffer with Graves too.
I use a powder called Curash (sulfur and cornflour) and that seems to take the lumpy swelling look away and itching.
It seems to settle it and I gave up on cortisone creams a long time ago.
Thank you!! I've always wondered about this rash and ive tried all the cortisone creams and many other potions but not "curash" so i will try that next.
OMG i just posted something about rash and graves
so i guess this answers my question.
thanks again guys.
That rash sounds so uncomfortable. Its really bad when doctors struggle to identify something and grab for the prozac.
I do hope you get a solution real soon! Amazing to read about the link to Graves disease.
Glad you gave up the notion that it was in your head!!! How frustrating.
