Dee, an underactive thyroid may have an effect on your immunity, but as far as I know it doesn’t usually cause people to develop allergies.
It sounds like you’re not taking enough Eltroxin® as you still suffer some of the symptoms of an underactive thyroid (dryskin, feel the cold more than others, and have many many more face wrinkles than the average 68 year old). The best would be to have your blood tested to make sure you are taking enough Eltroxin®. Good luck.
