Brief Answer:
Neck swelling

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query
Throat infection won't cause swelling in front of the neck. the neck swelling can be due to thyroid disease or some neck space infection or salivary gland swelling or a cyst.
The throat infection can be due to post nasal drip or tonsillitis or pharyngitis.
Please send me the picture of the throat and neck so that I can suggest you better.
Any fever?
Any difficulty in swallowing?
Follow up with the required information.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Eczema

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the pictures mam.
I have seen the picture. You have a skin disease probably eczema. It can be as a result of allergic reaction also to a neck jewellery or a cosmetic.
My advice is you should get yourself examined by a dermatologist.
Avoid using any cosmetics.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards

I am a Ph.D. chemist, ~50, have been taking thyroid medication since 1995, Since switching from T4 only to T3/T4 (25ug/75ug), I have seen a big improvement in cognition and then on switching to T3 (50ug) only (done this myself for just the past 3 days see and even better improvement when it comes to my attention span. In addition, I take meds for depression & anxiety. I have not experienced any unpleasant side effects of T3 only besides a little diarrhea--is this OK? ( I think somehow, my body has a greatly diminished ability to covert T4 to T3).

Hey, Im a 25 year old male. I have been having symptoms of hypothyroidism and a few of hyperthyroidism, such as cold hands and feet, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, I never sweat even when exercising, low heart rate ( 52 BPM resting) but also have social anxiety and nervousness. I recently had a blood test done at a near by lab for cheap. TSH     1.580 Thyroxine (T4)     8.2 ug/dL T3 Uptake     35% Free Thyroxine Index     2.9 Do you see any problems there? I can t go to a doctor because i have no health insurance and have no money. I also read that hypothyroidism can play a part in delayed puberty. I didn t see any development until i was 16/17 and still look very young and feel underdeveloped. Is there anything else that could cause these symptoms? Should I get more blood work done?

Hi , I am 20 weeks pregnant, my TSH level is 4.72 My physician tried to put me on Synthroid - 25 mcg ( but I took its generic version called Levothyroxine ) but due to some kind of Tachy cardia problem before, I could not continue this medication as it effected adversely on my heart beats and my heart beats race up to 3 times the normal and it took almost a week to get stable or a little normal... also wanted to mention that I took only 1/2 a tablet of 25 mcg of this medicine, which reacted instantly, so my doc asked me to stop it and to see a Cardio, all came normal when they did ultra sound of my heart and other check ups. Now my Physician asked me to try Thyronorm which I used to take in India prior my pregnancy , but she would like to know if this is safe to take during pregnancy , also please advice how much should be the right amount of dosage in my case.
