Reports that first came from China and then from Europe have shown that the skin can be affected by SARS-COV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in up to 20% of cases. The virus triggers a number of immune reactions so it is no surprise that the skin is involved.

The issue is that COVID can cause a wide variety of skin signs and symptoms, which is why there has been a delay in recognising that these various skin rashes were linked to the virus.

Three main types of skin rashes associated with COVID are:

1. Urticaria (hives),
2. Erythemato-papular rash (described as a red bumpy rash) or erythemato-vesicular rash (described as chicken pox-like rash)
3. Chilblains
