I am so worried about my well-being because my body suddenly got a lot of red rashes. It is not itchy or painful but it increases day by day. Is this a symptom of covid19? Because I was nervous and scared, I felt nauseated for a while yesterday. I don’t know if it is the symptoms of covid or anxiety. I don’t have a fever or cough, but I feel tired easily these day. Am I suffering from COVID? Should I do the swab test?
