The Covid-19 virus has disrupted our lives, and created a lot of side effects we know very little about. Recent studies from Italy show that 20% of patients with Covid-19 will have some form of a skin rash. These rashes can appear before the other symptoms in about 50% of cases. The 4 most common types are: morbilliform, levido retucularis, petechial (with toe or finger ulcers in some cases) & generalized itching.
Dr. Monique S. Cohn has diagnosed a surprising number of patients with skin conditions that have indicated a patient has contracted COVID-19. She also has the ability to do a Covid-19 rapid test in our Twinsburg office.
We are, of course, practicing all the precautions we can in our Twinsburg office. Extra cleaning, getting vaccinated, screening patients for fevers, and many more create a safe environment to visit the dermatologist.
If you think you may be experiencing one of these COVID-19 rashes, contact Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center right away by calling 330-425-7600 to set up an appointment in Twinsburg with Dr. Monique S. Cohn.
