In brief: Thin skin
As far as i know being hypothyroid does not cause thin skin.
It causes your skin to become very dry . Replacing thyroid horomone will help but some symptoms will continue despite taking medication . Predesione may cause some skin thinning although i would defer that to a specialist . You can avoid taking hot showers and use a very good moisturizer has natural and does not have alot of perfumes ec.
