Thanks for the query.

Topical cream for local application (LA) hardly influences systemic conditions as the creams act locally with very little being systemically absorbed. Therefore most of the topical creams have no interaction with hypothyroid condition per se or its treatment.

Erytop cream, Erytran Cream, eryacne 4% gel, etc., are few examples of erythromycin salt containing creams. Please check with a nearby pharmacy about availability of this product nearby your locality.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have more enquiries.
