Clinical cases of cutaneous eruptions in patients with new coronavirus infection (COVID-19) are described. The authors conclude that predominant morphological eruptions in the form of macules, papules and weals are associated with COVID-19. As a rule, eruptions occur simultaneously with the onset of the first signs of the disease or several days later both in adult and children. The severity of COVID-19 does not generally correlate with the severity of skin clinical manifestations. The skin eruptions are most frequently difficult to attribute to a particular diagnosis, and they are often diagnosed as some kind of dermatosis. Skin eruptions regress quite shortly due to COVID-19 treatment and improvements in the patients’ general condition as well as the use of topical steroids, or even without treatment.
