Post COVID skin conditions: What can I do to control the reactions?

Posted by mromeo762 @mromeo762, Jan 28, 2022

Living on steroids and Benadryl 2 weeks post covid because I keep having allergic reactions and rashes show up randomly. How long will this last? What can I do to help control the reactions? Getting really discouraged.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Post-COVID Recovery & COVID-19 Support Group.

No new medications. Before this I was on no medications now I am on Benadryl and nothing works

I didn't have covid but I'm long term vaccine injured (7 months) – many of the same symptoms. I have been using two products created by a mom who was trying to cure her daughter's eczema. The website is: satyaorganics.com
What's nice about the two sticks is that you can use them anytime and as much as you want because they are natural. I've found that rash meds just dry out your skin then you are left with even dryer itchier skin. This stuff has natural healing ingredients but also keeps your skin very hydrated so it doesn't get dry. Hope that helps a little.

I know you’ve heard it a bunch but it’s stress. The stress of trying to get back to your norm.. hydration sleep and pacing yourself can help. Benadryl Pepcid and Zyrtec can help. Feel better

Are you still suffering? I tested positive on 11/20/22. I was sick with fever/congestion/sore throat, but 4 days later had measle-like rash with mild itchiness on both legs. Used hydrocortisone and that area resolved, but then same thing happened on trunk. That area is improving, but now it is on my neck as of today. I am not on any medications, but have had acne & rosacea for many years. I also had "Moderna Arm"with 1st booster shot.

I've not heard off this in this context, but if it lasts you may want to get it biopsied by a dermatologist for Grovers Disease.

Thank you. I did find something today where Grover's Disease was linked to Covid.
