There are all kinds of side effects of the novel coronavirus-triggered disease, Covid-19, and we’ve been addressing them for almost two years now.

What is Covid toe?

Now, it’s been just revealed that Covid toe seems to be a side effect of the body-switching into attack mode to fight off the virus.

Experts say they have pinpointed the parts of the immune system that appear to be involved.

BBC notes that findings in the British Journal of Dermatology may help with treatments to ease the symptoms.

It has been also revealed that this can happen at any age, but affects children and teenagers more commonly.

BBC also noted that for some it is painless, but the rash can be extremely sore and itchy, with tender blisters and swelling.

“The affected skin – usually the toes, but sometimes the fingers – can look red or purple. Some people develop painful raised bumps or areas of rough skin. There can also be pus. Some have it for months, others for weeks.”

According to the latest reports, the UK podiatrist Dr. Ivan Bristow said, for most people, the lesions usually go away on their own.

But some individuals may need treatment with creams and other drugs.

“The confirmation of the cause will help to develop new treatments to manage it more effectively,” he said.

Fauci addresses Covid-19

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been making lots of headlines involving the novel coronavirus. Just the other day, we revealed that another issue worth mentioning about the pandemic and the efforts to stop it is making Covid-19 vaccines mandatory. 

ABCNews notes that the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said he would support mandating the Covid-19 vaccines for air travel.
