According tomedia BGR, many survivors of neo-coronary pneumonia notice that some COVID-19 symptoms do not go away even after a few months. Some common symptoms often linger, including fatigue and memory loss. Patients with “Long COVID” with purple skin lesions are more likely to need hospitalization, a new study has found.
Some of the more common coVID-19 sequelae include fatigue, coughing, and muscle soreness. Recently, it has been found that more and more survivors of neo-coronary pneumonia have developed a range of cognitive problems, such as brain fog, difficulty concentrating and memory loss. A recent study also found that fever and loss of appetite are two symptoms that increase a person’s likelihood of developing “Long COVID.”
Part of the above study is like this.
We looked at whether there were different types of symptoms in patients with chronic obstructive pneumonia. We found two main patterns: those who reported only fatigue, headache and upper respiratory symptoms (shortness of breath, sore throat, persistent cough and loss of smell), and those with multiple systemic symptoms, including persistent fever and gastrointestinal symptoms.
In longer-lasting individuals, persistent fever and loss of appetite were strong predictive factors for subsequent hospital visits.
A more comprehensive study of nearly 1,000 patients in 39 countries found that many “Long COVID” patients tend to experience skin changes after their first infection with the virus.
The study was carried out by the European Society of Dermatology and Sexually Pathology (EADV).
Eureak Alert points out that:
Patients showed a wide range of dermatological manifestations, ranging in duration, including urticaria, with a median duration of 5 days, and pernio/chilblains (“COVID toes”), which lasted 15 days, but sometimes as long as 130-150 days, as well as papules scale outbreaks, i.e. scaly papules and plaques, lasting 20 days (1).
The study also found that one symptom was particularly pronounced — mesh cyanosis, which causes 100% of “Long COVID” patients to need hospitalization at some point. CoVID toes, on the other hand, cause only 16% of people to need hospitalization. Mesh cyanosis usually refers to purple skin lesions that occur in areas such as a person’s hips or limbs.
