This is Dr. Davidyou need to see your GP doctor and get blood test to check your thyroid hormone levels to check your TSH and T3 and T4 levels.if your TSH levels are above 3.0, then this is a sign of hypothyroidism or low thyroid hormones and your doctor will have to increase your levothyroxine dose above 25mcg a day. the rash around your mouth could be a bacterial or fungal rash possibleor it could be perioral dermatitiscan you upload a clear jpg photo of the rash around your mouth so I can better help you have a GP doctor you can see who can check your thyroid levels?
