(CMR) Rashes, purple fingers and bruised toes are some of the symptoms described by those experiencing what has been dubbed as ‘COVID toes’.
UK doctors say they have been inundated with reports of patients experiencing lesions and bruises on their feet – a symptom they believed is linked to the coronavirus.
According to the doctors who have been getting these reports, the symptoms appear to be most common in children and teens who are otherwise asymptomatic.
The doctors further reveal that ‘COVID toes’ usually clear up on their own in about a week with no long-term damage to the skin.
According to experts in the medical community it is not uncommon for people to develop rashes when they are battling infections, as it is a well-known side effect of many viral infections, including pneumonia.
However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not list rashes or bruises as a symptom of the coronavirus.
