Can "Eltroxin" cause an increase in acne, and is it really true that coffee causes ance. If so, what is it about coffee that would do this?

Dear Linda
Acne is caused by an imbalance in the sex hormones such as oestrogen and testosterone and not by any other hormones such as thyroid hormone in Eltroxin or any food or beverage such as coffee. Do consult a Dermatologist to obtain treatment for your acne.

yes eltroxine can cause acne especially if the eltroxine levels are too high because of a number of issues. alcohol excersice diet period. I know this because one i have been on eltroxine for 6 years now and qualified nurse. not to mention im doing my master on disease at the moment. I think before you leave a comment that your not sure about and you should be qualified enough to state such a fact before misleading someone.
