    have you had blood work done for thyroid, or have you been to an internist to see if everything is working properly in your body? sometimes you need a couple of tests from a doctor other than derms. then all the notes are put together and they can come up with a diagnosis. i couldn't read the test results, i doubt if i would understand them anyway, but it doesn't hurt to go for a complete physical and blood work.

    no, they did a biopsy but never drew any blood for a blood test...which i thought was weird...i thought theyd run a blood test too. To my knowledge they didnt do any thyroid test or anything. Could a thyroid problem cause those dots and redness on the chest?
