Raised ANTITHYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES without symptoms. Need to treat?

Resolved Question:

Hi! I am Yatin. Male, 36 years. In May 2014 I got a full body scan (it was part of an insurance exam) and in that found Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies test >1300. My mother too has Thyroid. So the doctor consulted asked me to get a TSH T3 T4 test done. Results were - TSH 10.75, T3 97 and T4 8. She prescribed Thyroxine 50mg 1 tablet daily as soon as I wake up. I have been having that ever since. She asked me to get TSH, FT3 and FT4 monitored every 3 months.
I got a test done in Sep and results were TSH 0.22 FT3 4 and FT4 2.1. She said continue medicine. Next test was in November and results were crazy. TSH 120, FT3 1.2 and FT4 0.7. She said get tested again as report may be incorrect. New report from different lab had same results. No symptoms. She said continue medicine and re do test in 45 days.
January test TSH 140, FT3 1.79 and FT4 0.88. I am scared. Want your opinion.

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.

I can't appreciate the pimples well in the picture. If possible you could send me a new picture so i can appreciate the pimples clearly.

I would recommend application of Mupirocin or neosporin cream twice a day meanwhile. From the history it could be Folliculitis which is a bacterial infection of the skin. But so that i can be sure of what it surely is i would need to see a clearer picture.

Take care

Patient replied :

As a note, my daughter stresses herself easily. Is there any chance these pimples could be stress related?

Yes stress is definitely an aggravating factor for pimples.
