Hives can be a reaction to anti-thyroid medications, but in other cases, the skin reaction is actually caused by the hyperthyroidism itself and will resolve once thyroid levels are stabilized.The latest medical guidance notes that for “minor” skin irritation with Antithyroid meds, you can keep taking the drug in conjunction with antihistamines. Ultimately, your doctor will need to make a judgment call as to whether or not your reaction is “minor”.
Wishing you all the best as you make this difficult decision!
