Autoimmune: It could be that your hypothyroidism is related to hashimoto's thyroiditis which can be associated with chronic urticaria, did you check your thyroid antibodies? One autoimmune disease can coexist with another causing the vasculitic rash. You need to see an immunologist for a work up.

See a dermatologist: See a dermatologist, rheumatologist, immunologist. An allergist is probably not for you.
