COVID-19 and Skin – Pubmed search results

Until vaccination for the SARS CoV-2 becomes a reality, it appears that the infection is here to stay. With many countries lifting lockdown restrictions, aesthetic clinics have started reopening with strict standard operating procedures in place. It is pertinent that the physician today understands the infection, disinfection measures and personal protective equipment to reduce chances of viral transmission and provide safe clinical settings for oneself, the staff and the patients. An online...
COVID-19, the infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), has resulted in a global pandemic with unprecedented health, societal and economic impact. The disease often manifests with flu-like symptoms and is dominated by pulmonary complications, but widely diverse clinical manifestations involving multiple organ systems can result. We posit that viral tropism and the aberrant host immune response mediate the protean findings and severity in this...
The mortality rate of COVID-19 has been observed to be higher in males than in females internationally.(1) In humans, the only known promoter of the TMPRSS2 gene is an androgen response element; (2, 3) therefore, androgens could potentially explain the sexual dimorphism observed in COVID-19 disease burden.(4).
CONCLUSION: Following the implemented hygiene regimen, a high proportion of young children rapidly developed hand eczema. Well-established prophylactic skin care might have spared a proportion of the children from developing hand eczema. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
A growing number of skin lesions during the COVID-19 pandemic are being recognized. Acral ischemic lesions identical to chilblains are most typical in children and young adults. We report an infant girl, aged 1 month and 29 days, with a peculiar reticulated purpuric eruption on her soles, with positive immunohistochemistry for SARS-CoV-2 in the endothelia of dermal blood vessels. The patient had an excellent outcome without specific therapy.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic situation, most children are taking care by their family members. Here we reported two cases of vaccinated child developing varicella after contacting with their elder family members with herpes zoster at home, and call for the attention of family clustering infectious diseases occurrence, including varicella-zoster-virus (VZV) transmission, during COVID-19 outbreak.
A significant drop was found in the number of hospitalizations due to bacterial infections among children during the first peak period of COVID-19 in Israel. There was a 77% decrease in serious bacterial infections, and ≥50% decrease in most types of bacterial infections, especially osteoarticular and skin infections, followed by pneumonia and ENT infections.
CONCLUSIONS: It is not recommended to routinely use stoma support rods in the clinical practice.
T cells expressing the cutaneous lymphocyte antigen (CLA) mediate pathogenic inflammation in atopic dermatitis (AD). The molecular alterations contributing to their dysregulation remain unclear. With the aim to elucidate putative altered pathways in AD we profiled DNA methylation levels and miRNA expression in sorted T cell populations (CD4^(+), CD4^(+)CD45RA^(+) naïve, CD4^(+)CLA^(+), and CD8^(+)) from adult AD patients and healthy controls (HC). Skin homing CD4^(+)CLA^(+) T cells from AD...
CONCLUSIONS: The HRIPT outcomes from 154 studies on 134 substances using 16,512 volunteers were obtained. Most studies confirmed that at the selected induction/challenge dose, sensitization was not induced. In 0.12% of subjects (n = 20), there was induction of allergy. However, in the last 11 years, only 3 (0.03%) of 9854 subjects became sensitized, perhaps because of improved definition of a safe HRIPT dose from the local lymph node assay and other skin sensitization methodologies, as well as...
Eczema is a multifactorial skin disease that affects 20% of children worldwide and has a complex relationship with microbial, nutritional, parental and environmental factors. In this study, we investigated the potential association of eczema with the gut microbiome and environmental factors. One hundred and fifty-two newborn subjects and their mothers were recruited within 10 days postnatally at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Hong Kong, China and asked to complete questionnaires on allergies,...
CONCLUSION: This large population-based study indicates a significant autoimmune comorbidity of adults with AD, especially between AD and autoimmune dermatologic, gastrointestinal and rheumatologic diseases. Having multiple autoimmune diseases had a stronger association with AD than having only one autoimmune disease.
CONCLUSION: In this study, we found that using hydroxychloroquine and presence of fever are the risk factors potentially leading to a prolonged treatment duration of AGEP.
