Does Thyronorm 50 mcg cause face darkening?

Hi , I am 31 years old man.I have hypothyroidism and currently taking Thyronorm 50 mcg tablets for past 10-12 months.Recent tests have TSH level at 8.25,TPO at 448. Recently my face and neck have significantly darkened.Is that something to do with the tablets I use or anything else? Lastly, we are planning for kids, so how does me being hypothyroid will effect that?

Hello,

No, the skin darkening is not due to thyronorm. Please visit a dermatologist, if it worsens. Yes, thyroid levels do affect fertility. Please continue the medicines as directed by your endocrinologist and get your TSH and TPO antibodies checked at intervals.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr AJEET SINGH, General & Family Physician

Thank you. About three weeks ago, I noticed a slight redness of skin at throat area. It waned and is now back on all over the front of my neck. The skin seems puffed and is very red. No small or large bumps on skin. My throat is mildly sore.
