Skin Manifestations in Coronavirus

"The novel coronavirus may cause dermatological symptoms such as pseudo-frostbite, hives and persistent, sometimes painful redness, as symptoms that affect the body outside the respiratory system continue to be found that may be associated with coronavirus infections, according to the French National Union of Dermatologists-Venereologists (SNDV – skin and sexually transmitted disease doctors)." 

Dermatological symptoms may be the latest new coronavirus symptom
Pseudo-frostbite, hives and redness may appear with or without respiratory symptoms.

"The symptoms range from hives to measles-like rashes to a condition resembling frostbite."

"There have been increasing reports of dermatologic manifestations of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The first case series of dermatologic manifestations included 18 Italian patients with erythematous, urticarial, and vesicular rashes, often on the trunk. Other reports include drug hypersensitivity, urticaria, apetechial rash mimicking dengue, and acro-ischemia. It is important to further characterize dermatologic manifestations of COVID-19 in order to understand the relationship between the virus and skin, and determine whether cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 may assist with early disease detection. To date, collecting cases of dermatologic manifestations of COVID-19 has been challenging given their relative infrequency and the rapid spread of COVID-19."

The Science Times reports, "Two different Chinese doctors who were both critically ill from the coronavirus have actually seen their skin turn dark right after being brought back to life from the brink of death. Dr. Hu Weifeng and Dr. Yi Fan, had previously caught the virus when they were treating patients at the Wuhan Central Hospital back in January." - Another report about this from the New York Post.

"Skin manifestations were observed in about one-fifth of a group of patients with COVID-19 in the Alessandro Manzoni Hospital in Lecco, in northern Italy.",

"A variety of repurposed drugs and investigational drugs such as remdesivir, chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, ritonavir, lopinavir, interferon‐beta, and other potential drugs have been studied for COVID19 treatment. We reviewed the potential dermatological side‐effects of these drugs."
