The COVID-19 epidemic that's affecting the world is throwing up some unusual things in the clinical manifestations that appear to vary for every person as well as in various countries. Several organ systems may take a hit diversely in various amounts in different infected people. We have seen quite a few reports in the media as well as in the healthcare periodicals of a collection of different skin conditions in people infected with COVID-19. Among the odd conditions that has been given some attention within the media is just how many of those with COVID-19 are getting chilblains, mainly kids and people who would not generally get them. Chilblains usually are quite common at any rate in the colder climates. The earliest reports of these chilblains in people that have coronavirus was in the winter months in Spain and Italy, which means you will assume a number of people to get them anyways. Subsequent investigation focused on if they were just an incidental finding or if the problem really was causing the chilblains and they're part of the disease process of the disease. This is still unclear currently which one of these is the situation.
An instalment of the podiatry affiliated livestream, PodChatLive dealt with this concern on chilblains in COVID-19 along with the nature of the phenomenon. The hosts on the show discussed the problem with Nadia Dembsky, a podiatrist from South Africa who has a special interest in this subject and is considering pursing a PhD on the subject. In the episode, they did especially cover the concerns concerning if the chilblains really are a part of the disease process of the COVID-19 or if they are simply just typical everyday chilblains which are merely more common in individuals infected by the coronavirus. This show of PodChatLive was broadcast live on Facebook and also the edited version of the video is uploaded to YouTube, plus an audio edition on the typical podcast websites.
