Is Rash a Symptom of COVID?

Although many people are aware of some of the common symptoms of COVID-19, there are some less common symptoms that you may not be aware of, such as a rash. If you think you may have a COVID-19 infection, it is important to get tested as soon as possible so that you can quarantine appropriately. Below, we will break down some of the common symptoms of COVID-19 and tips for getting tested.

Common Symptoms of COVID

If you’re feeling ill, you may be wondering if you could have COVID-19. There are a variety of common symptoms of COVID. However, every case will present itself a little differently. If you think you could have COVID, it is very important to get tested and self-isolate as soon as possible. Here are some common symptoms to look out for:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Chest pain or shortness of breath
  • Body aches
  • Loss of taste and smell
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

When to Get Tested For COVID-19

If you’ve recently found a mysterious rash and you’re not sure what is causing it, this is not a definitive sign of COVID-19. There are various reasons why you may have a rash, so it is important to consider how you could have gotten it and get tested for COVID to rule it out. Other common causes of rash include :

  • Allergic reaction
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Eczema

Some COVID patients have seen itchy rashes or patches on their toes or fingers. If you have noticed this and have any other signs of COVID, it would make sense to get tested. Recent exposure to COVID-19 is another reason to get tested. So if someone with who you were recently in close contact has tested positive, you should get tested.
