Best you talk with: Your own doctor. There are a number of things that cause palmar erythema or red palms, one of the most common is alcoholism. In your case there are many possibilities and best to be sorted out in person by a doc familiar with your history, and you probably need some tests to examine you current thyroid levels not just TSH, amongst other things. Hope you get to the bottom of this soon! Best wishes!
