Abstract

The dermatological signs of Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID19) in children are uncommon and different from adults. The majority of infected children were asymptomatic, and cutaneous symptoms of infection in children usually appear several weeks after the disease. This article describes four different cutaneous manifestations of COVID-19 in children, including chilblains, erythema multiforme-like lesions (EM), urticaria, and vesicular rash in terms of recalling to mind COVID-19 infection.
