Is heat rash due to hypothyroidism?

I have hypothyroidism. (A recent diagnosis) I have also been heat intolerant for about 10 years. I sweat very little and devlop heat rash on my legs easily on very hot days. (Less so when I apply water to them to help me cool.) I am wondering if this is a symptom of hypothyroidism? I can't seem to find a complete list anywhere online and I'd like to understand this disease and learn how to manage it effectively.
