We all know Covid-19 is a severe, respiratory virus that mainly affects the airways and lungs. The main symptoms are fever, cough, fatigue, breathing difficulty and sore throat. Interestingly, loss of smell (anosmia in medical terms) is also a feature of this virus. In fact, some people have no other symptoms except for loss of smell.
We know what the virus looks like under the microscope. In breaking research published by Italian researchers in Lombardy last week, we also know what Covid-19 looks like when it presents on the skin.
The researchers looked at 88 Covid-19 patients in their hospital, and found that 18 patients (20.4%) had a skin rash, including 8 patients who developed a rash at the onset of disease. The body (trunk) was the main area involved, and the rash can be slightly itchy or not at all.
Every day, we learn something new about this global menace. The day will come when we find the treatment or vaccine to rid us of this virus. Till then, all of us at Tham Siew Nee Skin Clinic hope you will stay safe and take care of your health!
