I am hoping someone out there can help me. I have a severe case of graves/hyperthyroidsm. Recently I developed this horrible rash all over my body. Hands,feet,arms,legs,face,head. Has this ever happened or does anyone know what it could be? Any relief from it? PLEASE HELP

I was daignosed with graves disease in 1999. I had radiation treatment to ablate my thyroid in 2000. So now I am hypothyroid and take synthroid every day. I have never had a rash though like you descrive though. And they said my case aas also very severe (i was eating pizza and junk every day and was 110lbs at 5'10). I would say maybe it isnt related to the graves. Go see your endo or family practice doctor asap though to get the rash checked. Graves can be dangerous so you need to make sure you are keeping up on it, and getting checked often. Especially when something new/alarming starts.

Moonieg, I have the same thing and it took 6 months to get a proper diagnosis. Pruigio Nodularis, is what they say it is, which I think actually means, they don't know what the heck it is. The only thing that helped was UV light treatments, 3 times a week for over a year. It has drastically slowed down the rash, but it still isn't completely gone. Please email more info if you get this message.
