Thank you for choosing DoctorSpring.

Our team Endocrinologist has forwarded this consult to me. Could you please upload couple of picture of the lesion if anything is still visible. Or has it faded completely ?

Thank you

Patient replied :

it has faded. I wanted the endo dr.because I was wondering about Addison's disease or adrenal issues.

Hello, thankyou for your replyPlease can you tell me if you are having any of the following symptoms in addition to the brown lesions, so that I can give you an informed opinion.Are you have malaise or fatigue over a long period?Are you having any abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea that alternates with constipation?Do have have loss of appetite and weight loss?Do you feel faint or dizzy frequently?Are you moody , depressed or irritable?Do you have intolerance to heat or cold?Do have any other symptoms and over how many days did the lesions fade?What medication and dose are you taking for the hypothyroidism? Please reply as a follow and I will guide you accordingly. Thankyou

Edit : Your further consult followups will be replied by our Endocrinologist Dr.J Muthukrishnan. From a Dermatologist point of view these lesion does not look appear to be related to Addisons or any other adrenal or endocrine issues.

Thank you
