Skin rashes common among those who test positive for Covid, study finds

Mar 16, 2021 17:19 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Skin rashes are common among those who test positive for Covid-19, according to a new study conducted by King's College London researchers.

The study states that sometimes these manifestations may be the first and only sign of Covid-19.

Recognising these unusual skin rashes could be helpful in identifying cases missed while focusing only on the core symptoms of the virus.

According to the study, 17% of SARS-CoV-2-positive cases reported skin rashes as the first presentation.
