This is the most specific COVID rash as not many other skin conditions present in this way. It is known as Chilblains and was relatively rare before COVID as it was seen previously during cold spells and in people who were likely to have problems with circulation in the fingers or toes. However, since COVID, dermatologists noticed this type of rash much more frequently and in warm weather which was very unusual. Eventually the link with COVID was made. This rash tend to be more common in younger people. The rash presents itself as reddish and purplish bumps on the fingers or toes and can affect many digits. This type of rash is usually present later in the infection and may appear weeks after the onset of the viral infection. The fingers and toes are usually sore but not itchy. When the rash recover the top layers of the skin may peel where the purplish bumps were with large scaly patches during the recovery period.
