@hopeful1953, I believe @sonyamagee1964 mentioned a while back that her husband experienced blisters post Covid. Other members have talked about experiencing dermatographia, a condition also known as skin writing. When people who have dermatographia lightly scratch their skin, the scratches redden into a raised wheal similar to hives. Dermatographia can be caused by infection in some cases.

It sounds like your situation is different. Did this just start recently? What are you doing to relieve the blisters? Are they painful?

@colleenyoung. The blisters and dry skin on my fingers and palms have begun to clear. This was a symptom of the COVID virus. There wasn’t any pain. I believe a light application of steroid cream was vital to the heal.
I hope people recognize this virus and talk to their doctor as soon as they even “think” that they have contracted COVID. This skin condition can be caused by COVID.
I am glad I was able to share my symptoms.

@colleenyoung My COVID skin blisters and dry skin that I had reported are healing. I was prescribed Triamcinolone Acetone 0.1. This skin condition developed a few weeks after my positive COVID test.
A cough developed a few days prior to my positive test. My coughed stopped after being prescribed a steroid. It has returned.
Has anyone had their cough redevelop?
