Fitness & Health:

Rashes, dry lips, and the so-called ‘Covid toes’ are all skin symptoms described by patients. A mum has recalled how she had a head-to-toe rash which was one of the newest symptoms of the deadly virus.

A Middlesbrough mum described how she had “every symptom under the sun” and called the virus “a beast.”

Kathleen Sadler, 67, first contracted the novel coronavirus back in March last year. Her symptoms persisted and became so intense that she was taken to hospital.

Kathleen experienced “every symptom under the sun” including the three major symptoms of a cough, fever, and a loss of smell and taste.

A few months later Kathleen began to feel “a bit off again” but “never thought you could get it [the virus] again”.

She developed a head-to-toe rash which lasted for two weeks.

The unusual rash was one of the newest signs being reported as relating to COVID-19.

Kathleen’s symptoms started off as a chest infection but quickly developed to the rest of the body and skin.

Kathleen then lost her taste and smell before developing a head-to-toe rash.

She said: “I was just coughing; my ribs and my back were hurting.

“Then all of a sudden I got this rash. It was torture.

“I never slept for three nights, just coughing and scratching.”

Kathleen told how the rash covered her whole body, including her eyelids, lips, in between her fingers and toes and on her scalp.

It was then the mum was told the devastating news that she had sadly tested positive for COVID-19 for a second time.

If you get symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) again, you must self-isolate immediately and ask for a test, advised the NHS.

The health body added: “The symptoms are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

“If someone you live with (or someone in your support bubble) gets symptoms again, you must also self-isolate immediately.”Kathleen described how she has never recovered fully from the first covid infection and “still to this day continues to suffer from night sweats and constant fatigue”.

“This covid is a beast,” she added.
