Brief Answer:
About cellulitis and hypothyroidism;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone through your concern!

Actually, the only known cause of Hashimoto thyroiditis ( the most common cause of hypothyroidism) is a familial predisposition.

There is no correlation between infectious diseases and hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism is caused by autoimmune disease and until now only genetic predisposition is verified.

So, do not try to find out a possible connection between cellulitis and hypothyroidism as there are two different pathologies, not related to each other.

Best wishes
