Omicron symptoms on skin, lips and nails are a reason to worry
New Delhi : Omicron is a coronavirus variant that has been dominating the world and increasing the number of positive cases; but its new signs and symptoms are totally different from the ones in older variant.
Let's talk about the lesser known symptoms of coronavirus which are different from the known symptoms.
Apart from the three main symptoms of the Omicron variant, patients should seek urgent medical attention for the lesser-known signs of the strain appearing on the skin, lips and nails, reported The Mirror.
The American Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has notified that the people infected with omicron variant had been showing a wide range of symptoms.
One such symptom of the virus occurs on the skin, lips and nails. The CDC warned that we should watch out for pale, grey or blue-coloured skin, lips or nail beds, depending on our skin tone, as this can indicate low levels of oxygen in the blood, the report added.
The health body also described these signs as “emergency warning signs" for which we should seek urgent medical care.
The symptoms could also include trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion, and the inability to wake or stay awake.
Patients infected with Omicron show extreme tiredness. However, this is not limited to any age group. Young patients can also show extreme tiredness, as per chairperson of the South African Medical Association, Angelique Coetzee.
