Hope everyone is staying home and staying safe! Here is some information regarding dermatologic manifestations associated with Covid 19 infection. Recent studies from Italy show that 20% of patients with COVID 19 will have some form of a skin rash. The rash will appear before the other symptoms in around 50% of cases. The 4 most common types are: morbilliform, levido retucularis, petechial (with toe or finger ulcers in some cases) & generalized itching. If you think you may be experiencing one of these please contact our office for a virtual exam. Take care, be well.
