I am having my thyroid removed. Will this cause future hormone problems? Will it stop the skin outbreaks it has caused me to have for the past 2 yrs?

In brief: Hormone replacement

After removal of the thyroid gland you will require replacement of thyroid hormone for the rest of your life and will need to have your levels checked periodically to assure that you are on the right dose.
The dose may require adjustments frequently or only occasionally. This may or may not help your skin outbreaks. Hope this helps.
