Scientists are calling for skin rashes to be added to the list of recognized symptoms of coronavirus by the NHS. Researchers from King’s College London claim that skin rashes might be a valuable predictor of the virus which has – at the time of writing – killed over 45,000 people within the UK. After conducting a study conducted with Zoe Global Ltd, they found that 8.8 percent of individuals who had tested positive for COVID had also reported having a rash. Among those that didn’t take a test, but had experienced a minimum of one classic coronavirus symptom, 8.2 percent also reported skin rashes.

Their findings determined that while coronavirus is primarily a respiratory disease, it also targets multiple organs – including the skin.

Is there a link between a skin rash and coronavirus?

While the newest study which has not yet been peer-reviewed seems to suggest a link. It is worth noting that no other studies on this scale have yet been conducted. The study found that 17% of respondents who tested positive for the virus. They reported a rash because of the first symptom.

From the 27,157 app users who provided swab results, 2,021 (7.4%) tested positive for coronavirus. Of this group, 178 respondents (8.8%) reported skin rashes. Speaking about their findings, lead author Dr. Veronique Bataille, consultant dermatologist at St Thomas’ Hospital and King’s College London. He said: ‘Many viral infections can affect the skin, so it’s not surprising that we are seeing these rashes in Covid-19. ‘However, it’s important that folks know that in some cases. Skin rashes one of the primary or only symptoms of the disease. Skin rashes aren’t currently stated as a symbol by the NHS or CDC. Doctors have previously reported unexplained skin rashes in coronavirus patients, including a Kawasaki-type disease in children.

COVID Symptom Tracker app: skin rashes

Professor Tim Spector, who is running the COVID Symptom Tracker app. Tim has previously voiced concern about a few potential links between skin rashes and therefore the deadly bug. Urging doctors to ‘be suspicious,’ that a rash might be an indicator of coronavirus, he reasoned that it had been mainly a symbol displayed by children who had contracted Covid-19. chatting with the Evening Standard, he said: ‘It’s looking love it is predictive of getting a positive [coronavirus] test and GPs are unaware of it, in order that they are sending people away, or NHS 111 isn’t recognizing it as a possible symptom. ‘It’s usually together [with other symptoms] but it can come on at different times — sometimes after the opposite symptoms. ‘It can come a fortnight after the opposite symptoms. A fortnight before – it’s just being missed because the general public is unaware of it and doctors are unaware of it.’

Describing the inflamed skin as looking like an allergy or a chilblains rash. He emphasized that it’s ‘unusual’ and is usually seen in people that don’t normally get rashes. Adding: ‘It can just last for each day and disappear… people catch on for an extended time.’
