“The more pronounced the rash, the more severe the condition. Against the background of the main course of therapy, all skin manifestations disappear along with other symptoms. It is important to emphasize that a rash in case of a coronavirus infection is more often associated with the action of the virus, and not with allergic reactions, and in most cases this is not a reason for discontinuing drugs, but rather an indication for more active therapy, ”said Tatyana Ruzhentsova.

The Rospotrebnadzor expert also spoke about a number of specific symptoms that began to appear more often. First of all, it is cheilitis – inflammation of the lips with dryness, the formation of cracks and crusts. This symptom is observed, as a rule, with improper treatment, progression of symptoms of COVID-19, more often in children with high body temperature, repeated vomiting and diarrhea.
