My TSH was 9. Normal t3 and t4. Here are some things that I've been experiencing over the past couple years: oily skin, inflamed skin with capillaries that frequently dilate in warm/hot conditions/climates, feeling more than normal hot in the summer, feeling more than normal cold in the winter. Fatigue. Also a weird fact -- I always have a 6 pack, no matter what I eat, what I do. My doctor told me I had subclinical hypothyroidism and put me on thyroxine 50mcg, but something just doesn't seem right. Thyroid controls hormones and regulates temp and blood vessels and metabolism. Why would blood vessels dilate in warm conditions if I was hypo? Why would skin get inflamed? If anything, blood would flow to your heart and surface facial capillaries would constrict. Why would I have oily skin? Why would I be 8% body fat even when I smash ice cream? Hyper=low TSH, but it seems like I have more hyper symptoms. I bought LEMON BALM, which is said to have the ability to normalize thyroid levels.

When skin is infected by a fungus, the resultant infection is called tinea corporis (ringworm). It is most common in athletes and children. The infection may appear on the scalp, beards, groin, in between the toes and other places.
Tinea corporis can be caused by:
- Skin contact
- It is contagious, so if you use towels, bed linens and clothes of an infected person, you will get infected too.
- Touching a pet infected by tinea corporis.
Signs and Symptoms:
- The rash starts as a scant area of red, bumpy pimples and spots. Then the rash forms a ring, with raised, red borders and a clear middle. The border might look scaly.
- The rash may show up on face, legs, arms or other body areas which are exposed.
- The area feels itchy. It might also be flaky and dry. You might even experience hair loss in the infected area.
The skin in the area will be gently scraped off and the sample will be collected. Then, the sample will be viewed under a microscope. That will help discerning, which type of fungus is causing the infection.
The following treatment regime must be followed:
- The skin must be kept dry and clean.
- Fungal creams are best. Creams that contain miconazole, ketoconazole, clotrimazole or oxiconazole are excellent for fungal infections.
- Only apply the cream on clean skin. You can use it twice in a day. Bandaging the infected area is not recommended.
- To prevent the infection from spreading, wash your towels in warm water and use clean towels every time you bathe. Also, clean the bathroom and wear freshly washed clothes.
- If pets are infected, treat them as well.
The infection usually goes away under 4 weeks. The infection may branch out to the nails, groin, scalp and feet. Self-care is effective, but if symptoms persist, then do consult a specialist. Ringworms have certain complications, such as scratching the skin too much causes skin infections and other skin disorders, which may need further treatment.
