University of California dermatology Professor Randy Jacobs reported that COVID-19 can manifest as skin rashes.
“The patient’s symptoms started with a low temperature, nasal congestion, later nasal discharge and a wet cough without shortness of breath. A week later, he noticed a temporary vascular rash on one side of the front of his hip. It was observed for 24 hours and then disappeared. Simultaneously with a vascular rash, the patient noticed bright red hematuria (blood in the urine) and General weakness,” the doctor said.
The next day, these symptoms were replaced by a dry cough, severe weakness, and a test for coronavirus was positive.
Jacobs ‘ colleagues reported that other COVID-19 patients also had skin rashes.
