1) wound on the skin
Skin complaints associated with COVID are not uncommon. A study published in Britain in 2021 found that only one in five patients had a skin rash and no other symptoms. COVID can affect the skin in many ways. Some people may experience a skin rash or rash while others may have a skin rash accompanied by irritation.
Most of the symptoms of skin-associated covid may disappear after a few days or in some cases after a few weeks without requiring any special treatment. If there is a lot of burning or pain in the skin, then you can see a dermatologist who can prescribe a treatment like a cream.
2) Covid nails
During any infection, including Kovid-19, our body naturally tries to tell how much pressure it is under. He may try to convey this in a number of ways, including through our fingernails. When there is a temporary blockage in the growth of nails due to physical pressure on the body, horizontal lines appear on the nails of the fingers.
Abnormal production of protein in the skin under the nail causes horizontal white lines to appear on the nails. Data on symptoms associated with the nails of Kovid is limited, but it is estimated that one to two percent of Kovid patients may have it.
3) Hair fall
Hair loss is probably a minor symptom of COVID-19, which occurs a month or more after infection. A study of nearly 6,000 people who had been diagnosed with COVID-19 found that around 48 percent reported hair loss as the most common problem following a coronavirus infection. It lasted longer in people who were severely infected.
4) Hearing loss or tinnitus (ringing in the ears) :
Along with other infections, including the flu and measles, Covid has been shown to affect the inner ear cells, which can affect hearing or cause tinnitus, which is a constant feeling of buzzing in the ear. In a study conducted on about 560 people, it was found that 3.1 percent of Kovid patients lost their hearing while 4.5 percent had tinnitus.
Why all these symptoms?
It is not clear why these symptoms appear, but inflammation is actually a major factor. Inflammation acts as our body’s natural defense system against pathogens like COVID-19. It produces proteins called ‘cytokines’, which are important in controlling the activity of immune cells. Overproduction of these proteins, a form of inflammation caused by the corona virus, can cause hearing loss or tinnitus in some people. It can also block the very small blood vessels that carry blood to other organs, including the ears, skin and nails.
