Dry Skin

If dry skin is your only symptom, it would be unlikely to be caused by an underactive thyroid gland. However, many people with an underactive thyroid have subtle symptoms that they attribute to getting older, or not getting enough sleep. In addition to dry skin, other common symptoms of hypothyroidism include:

- Fatigue

- Muscle aches

- Weight gain

- Intolerance to cold

- Constipation


Do you have dry skin and some of the above symptoms?

Yes, I do.

No, only dry skin.
