Welcome to HCM.
The treatment for rosacea consists Firstly in avoiding possible triggers, which may include stress, foodstuffs and sunlight. Secondly use a topical treatment of Metronidazole. Then oral antibiotics are taken such as the tetracyclines you are currently on. Laser treatment has also shown to be very effective in treating rosacea. There should be no adverse interactions between the Synthroid and doxycycline you are currently taking. I trust you find this information helpful.
