COVID Toes, rashes emerge as new symptoms of the coronavirus

Doctors have identified new symptoms of COVID-19 this week called COVID toes – discolored toes that look swollen and feel painful to the touch.

Another unusual symptom of the novel coronavirus: purple or blue toes that look swollen and feel painful to the touch which the Dermatologist have named “COVID toes”.

Experts say the lesions have been popping up in younger people—sometimes as their first or only sign of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the coronavirus.

In a distinct number of COVID-positive patients, some experts are noticing skin rashes. They’re described as lesions on the foot and fingers.

A Report from March, compiled by dermatologists who worked with 88 coronavirus patients in Italy, found that 20% of those people had skin-related symptoms. The most common skin condition among these patients was a red, patchy rash.
