Does hypothyroidism cause body rash ?

hi im a 24 year old female with hypothyrodism and i have had a body rash that started off as red pimples day one and got worse now the pimples have gone but the skin is red, dry and very patchy and kind of joining together. My doctor has run some blood test for viruses such as measles . My FBC come back today everything fine apart from WBC is 13 and my ESR come back normal to. I had a IgM test and i IGG test.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
By the description you have given the rash seems to be either allergic in nature or due to some viral infection. The exact nature of the rash can be ascertained only by examining it. It is best to consult a dermatologist for it and get it treated.
