So thyroid people I have read all your posts. I am in my late 60s and have suffered with thyroid disease since I was 40, a genetic hand me down from mom. When I was 30 I remember my first "attack" of hives.
Thought it was from sitting in the sun, welts all over my thighs like quarters! Was diagnosed with Cystic
mytosis and put on Atarax which I took for years and dried my eyes and sinuses and made me sleepy. So I'm in a Health Food Store talking to the nutritionist about this. He told me to get Quercetin with Bromelatin and take 3caps 3x a day in between meals. Within 3 days I stopped the Atarax completely and there was absolutely no itching. People listen up, Quercetin is a natural antihistamine and will never harm you. I take only 4 a day but include them in my vitamin mix every day.

Now for the ugly: How do I get rid of these ugly spots? Every doctor I ever went to asked me "What are those spots on your skin" and one of them saw me cry. She sent me to the Rockefeller Institute in NYC...
and Dr.Nicholas Soter a top skin doc. from NYU Medical Center told me to wrap the affected areas with a thin layer of a topical steroid cream (Diprolene) covering it with Saran Wrap for 4 hours every day for few a few months. I did this and the spots after 3 months they did disappear to almost nothing..... However they appeared on other parts of my body. The downside is this medication has the ability to thin the skin, so I do not use it any more on my hands or areas where the skin is thinner. I use Dermablend on my hands and feet to cover them and just let it go at that.

I hope I have helped some of you out there and so surprised that none of these docs know about Quercetin!
