COVID positive with rashes/ hives skin symptom

I am COVID positive since 11/2. And develop rashes like hives on my body, leg, hand and even sometime on face. Normally it worsen at night. It started on the 4th, 5th day.
Isn’t normal for COVID patient to have this symptom?
Note: I have no any allergy history for food.

The first 3 days, I had been taken pre-script medicine from clinic (on 11/1), include Zithrolide-Azithromycin 250g (Antibiotic), loratadine (Flu).
Not sure isn’t from antibiotic? But the first 3 day no issue, and now already stop the medicine.
Currently taking antihistamine at night to stop the itchiness. But it will come back the next day also.

Hello and good afternoon.
Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your problem. I will try to help you.

Upon on your description, the symptoms you are experiencing can be due to several factors such as:

According to a recent study, skin rashes has been reported as COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Hives: COVID-19 rash can appear as itchy patches or wheals that resemble hives. These most often affect the limbs and torso.
  • Macules and papules: In some cases, a COVID-19 rash can consist of itchy spots that may either be flat or raised. This type of rash often impacts the torso.
  • Rash with blisters: This type of COVID-19 rash can appear with blisters that may look similar to chickenpox. It’s most often been observed on the torso and may itch.
