Hello. The patch would have nothing to do with your thyroid condition. Most likely it's either inflammatory eczema or ringworm. You need to see a doctor to determine whether you need cortisone cream or prescription ketoconazole cream to treat it


Brief Answer:
Thanks. This is just an area of eczema

Detailed Answer:
I appreciate the photo. This is eczema and nothing serious. You can use Cortisone cream twice a day for a week and that should clear it up.

Regards
