A new session that highlights the effects of COVID-19 on skin has been added to Health Education England elearning for healthcare’s (HEE elfh) e-dermatology programme.

Dermatological Presentations of COVID-19 provides an overview of the skin symptoms associated with the virus and how to diagnose them.

The session lists these symptoms as follows:

  • Pseudo-chilblain/acral erythema
  • Papulo-vesicular eruptions
  • Urticarial lesions
  • Livedo/vasculitic lesions

The elearning session is aimed at a range of health and care professionals including GPs, nurses, specialty doctors and colleagues treating COVID-19 patients.

On completion of the session, learners will be able to describe the differential diagnoses of the skin symptoms of COVID-19, outline investigations and formulate a management plan.

The session has been developed in partnership with the British Association of Dermatologists. For more information and to access the resource, please visit the e-dermatology programme page.
