Getting hives on neck and scalp after taking levothyroxin after thyroidecromy for papillary cancer. Are they related?

I had thyroidecromy for papalary cancer 6months ago. On 125lpm of levothyroxin. I keep getting hives on neck and scalp? Could it be the meds? I was on 150mcg and reduced two weeks ago. Hives subsided but now are back? Endo said not related. Gp said allergy screens were clear?

Hi,
The hives can be related to thyroid disease.
It can also be related for food issues.
A level of thyroid hormone is worth doing.
Hope this helps.
