Let’s talk about autoimmune disease and hives. Well, potentially any autoimmune disease can create a problem with hives, with a histamine kind of a reaction.
But thyroid conditions are particularly one condition which is linked most with hives more than many other types of autoimmune diseases. But I also have seen it with Sjogrens, and sometimes with rheumatoid arthritis you can get hives.
So whenever you’re going to get an immune system that’s attacking part of itself it’s not difficult for that immune system to overexpress itself and develop a high level of inflammatory mediators which can distribute through the body and cause chronic skin itching and all kinds of problems like that.

But chronic thyroid problem, and I believe the Tashimoto’s or the autoimmune disease where the thyroid can flip from hyper—overactive—to hypo, that’s the one often linked with skin problems. I’ve seen more patients with skin issues with thyroid disease than probably any other kind of autoimmune expression. So that’s the one: it’s thyroid conditions.
