The epidemic of New Coronary Pneumonia has spread all over the world. The virus often has mutations and the symptoms are not obvious. Dr. Amy Paller, an American authority on children’s dermatology, recently pointed out that chicken pox or red bumps on the toes may be signs of infection in children with asymptomatic neocoronavirus.
According to foreign media reports, Dr. Amy Paller, a pediatric dermatologist at a children’s hospital in Chicago, said that she had seen a large number of lesions or painful lumps on the toes of adolescents and children. However, the lesion is on one toe, or it may be on all toes, usually on the toes or soles. The lesions similar to chickenpox or measles are mostly bright red or even purple.
The doctor added that the lesions on the toes can sometimes be itchy or painful, and their children usually have no signs of other new coronavirus infections. Due to limited knowledge, the PhD and her research team are not sure whether there is a direct correlation. She admits that if this is the only sign of infection shown by the child, parents do not need to take urgent action for the time being, use photos as a record, and then pay attention to whether they will have other illnesses.
However, the diagnosed child has no serious complications and the recovery rate is faster than the average adult. Taiwanese pediatrician Wu Changteng also quoted Dr. Amy’s findings and reminded frontline doctors: “This kind of lesions similar to varicella or measles may be a new special symptom of new coronavirus infection.” The
General Council of the Spanish Academy of Podiatry has warned , Refers to the occurrence of “chickenpox or measles” lesions on the feet of some patients with new coronary pneumonia. According to the organization, this type of lesion presents a purple color block that looks very similar to chickenpox, measles, or frostbite, and usually appears on the toes without leaving any traces after healing.
Earlier, the International Federation of Podiatrists published a report on a 13-year-old boy, which was the first case of this symptom. The lesion on his foot was initially thought to have been bitten by a spider, but later he showed signs of new coronary pneumonia. The doctor found that his sister and mother had developed fever, cough and difficulty breathing six days before the lesion appeared on his feet. They were later diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia.
