Coronavirus warning – the ‘unusual’ and painful skin symptoms of COVID-19 infection

Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in more than 14 million people across the world. You could be at risk of the virus if you develop itchy sores on your hands and feet, it’s been claimed.

The UK lockdown is slowly being eased, as shoppers are now allowed to explore the high-street in England, provided they remain socially-distanced.

You can also visit someone else’s garden, as long as there aren’t more than six people in the garden at once.

But the government has still advised the public to remain indoors as much as possible, in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.

You may be at risk of COVID-19 infection if you notice some painful changes to your skin.

“But COVID-19 can also cause symptoms you might not expect.

“Younger people with less severe COVID-19 might develop painful, itchy lesions on their hands and feet that resemble chilblains, an inflammatory skin condition.

“Sometimes called COVID toes, this symptom typically lasts about 12 days.”
