When the pandemic COVID-19 began, there were no specific studies conducted related to coronavirus patients having different dermatological symptoms. Now, after 2.5 years of its existence and expansion, numerous studies confirm the following.
- Hair loss
It occurs 1 to 3 months after a person is infected by Covid and usually the patient does not consider this as an effect of COVID-19. There is an increased hair loss that lasts for 9 months and is advised to see your dermatologist so as to prevent any other hair conditions that may arise and for the hair loss to be treated with appropriate treatment. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an effective method used at the clinic to fight hair loss for which a blood sample is taken from the patient and through special processing, the plasma is separated. This is rich in platelets and is injected into the hair scalp. Prescription of food supplements rich in vitamins A and E as well as zinc are also recommended.
- Dehydration and hives
This is a common effect that shows when patients are going through covid or have just recovered from being infected by COVID-19. Mainly, extreme dehydration develops on the face and body which causes the unpleasant feeling of itchiness. In some cases, the patient might develop a rash. Anti-allergic medicine prescribed by your dermatologist can be used together with a palliative lotion which both can help with the treatment.
- Acne/Mascne (mask+acne) Wearing a mask for many hours is a crucial change for the skin since it has not been used to being covered by a mask, therefore many patients who visit the doctor show acne where the mask covers the face. When this is the case, it is recommended to use suitable skin care products daily in order to reduce skin breakouts as well as have frequent facials by skin care professionals who either use steam following the method known as hydrafacial to avoid pinching and pushing. Mesotherapy is another available option at the clinic that can be used to treat acne in combination with a hydrafacial.
In combination with all the above treatment methods, we also recommend intravenous IV therapy in order to prevent COVID-19 or any effects that may appear later in case you get infected. This is a fast and safe way to inject vitamins such as calcium, magnesium, and other healthy nutrients directly into the bloodstream with instant results.
