I have been taking Synthroid/ Levythyroxine for over 10+ years. I noticed that my melasma which was a pre-existing condition become worse. During the winter it is lighter and during the summer it becomes very dark. I also take vitamin D3 and B12. I have tried so many procedures/creams, lotions, that I have now given up. I have tried several foundations/concealor with little success, especially during the summer when it is hot , they melt right off my face. During the winter I have much more better chance of longevity. Please for your help.
