Since April 2020, Dr Bataille has carried out research on COVID rashes in collaboration with researchers at King’s College and the biotech company Zoe (https://covid.joinzoe.com/data).
The data collected via the COVID symptom app in the UK has been invaluable for COVID research and rashes occur in 8% of COVID cases and in 21% of those, the rash was the only presentation. It is therefore important to recognise another important potential sign of COVID infection.
The manuscript is now published in the British Journal of Dermatology: Br J Dermatol. 2021 May;184(5):880-887. doi: 10.1111/bjd.19807. Epub 2021 Mar 2.PMID: 33448030
