Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
The skin is usually dry in case of thyroid
problem.So ,probably thats one reason.
And if you have been undergoing any sun bathing ,where in your legs are exposed to direct sunlight ,then it can be a sun burn reaction.
You just have to drink plenty of water and use a god moisturizer lotion.Apply the moisturizer over wet skin i.e. just after bath.repeated use is recommended.
