Urticaria is a symptom of Covid that appears ‘suddenly’ on the skin

“It can sometimes be crusty, weepy or form blisters and does not tend to affect the face.”

It adds: “There are other, rarer, rashes associated with COVID-19 including pityriasis rosea-like, light-sensitive rashes affecting the face or neck.

“Vasculitis rashes, when small blood vessels in the skin become damaged, are also seen in severe cases of COVID-19 that need hospital support.”

What to do if you have a Covid rash
