Dermatologist Gallyamova: there are many skin symptoms of the postcovid, and there will be new ones Over time, there will only be more of them. Dermatologist and trichologist Yulia Gallyamova spoke about this in an interview with Lenta.ru.
The doctor noted that she was recently visited by a patient without a thumbnail. The woman complained that the detachment occurred simultaneously with hair loss after suffering from COVID-19. “She noted the detachment of nails from the nail bed, which we sometimes observe with the Coxsacke virus (it is less common in Russia, it is brought to us from Turkey). Of course, one case does not give a reason to make any extensive conclusions and move from the particular to the general, but this is to the fact that, quite possibly, we will see some more surprises, ”the dermatologist warned.
According to Gallyamova, dermatologists currently distinguish urticaria and dermatitis, resistance of allergic reactions to treatment, re-emerging allergic reactions in people who have not previously complained of such ailments, as well as an increase in the symptoms of existing chronic diseases.
Earlier, Nikolai Potekaev, the chief freelance specialist in dermatovenerology and cosmetology of the Russian Ministry of Health, said that post-lobe baldness occurs in 40 percent of those who have had COVID-19. According to the specialist, this may be due to both high fever during illness and the negative effect of anti-cytokine drugs or problems with blood vessels that nourish the hair.
