The COVID-19 pandemic which is affecting the globe is throwing up some unusual things in the medical symptoms that seem to vary for every person as well as in unique areas. Various body systems are affected diversely in different amounts in different people. There are numerous stories in the media as well as in the professional medical publications of a selection of distinct skin complaints in those who have contracted coronavirus. One of several unusual conditions which has been given some interest from the media is just how many of those with COVID-19 are developing chilblains, mainly children and those who would not commonly develop a chilblain. Chilblains are generally reasonably prevalent anyway in the cooler climates. The first reports of these chilblains in individuals with coronavirus was during the winter months in Spain and also Italy, so you could be expecting many people to get them anyways. Following analysis centered on if these were just an incidental finding or if the problem really was inducing the chilblains and they're part of the disease process of the condition. This is still not yet determined at this time which one is likely to be the problem.
An instalment of the podiatry connected live show, PodChatLive dealt with this issue on chilblains in COVID-19 and the nature of the phenomenon. The hosts of the episode talked about the situation with Nadia Dembsky, a podiatrist from South Africa with a special interest in this subject and who is intending on doing a PhD on the subject. The hosts and Nadia did particularly go over the challenges regarding if the chilblains are a part of the disease process of the COVID-19 or maybe they're just regular everyday chilblains that are simply more prevalent in those infected by COVID-19. This particular event of PodChatLive was streamed live on Facebook and the revised version of the show is on YouTube, along with an audio edition on the common podcast web sites.
