Brief Answer:
Discussed about your concerns.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have gone carefully through your concern.

If the low grade fever and high ESR are persisting for more than 1 month and infectious disease are ruled out, before attributing them to allergic reactions I would suggest to rule out rheumatological pathologies.

Probably an internal disease specialist or a rheumatologist would be of help.

Hypothyroidism can not cause fever, high ESR and white blood cells.

Hope the information will help.

Take care.
