Omicron: A symptom that doesn’t make you sick could be a warning sign.
OMICRON continues to spread around the world, resulting in an increase in cases.
The new strain that has become the dominant strain in the United Kingdom has slightly different symptoms.
After the infection, one symptom that has no bearing on how you feel is hair loss.
The Omicron strain attacks our bodies with symptoms that are slightly different from those of the other strains.
One new symptom that has recently been reported does not fit into the traditional Covid symptom category.
This one isn’t going to make you want to crawl into bed and drink hot tea.
Here’s how to recognize it.
New symptoms linked to the Omicron infection have been established thanks to reports from patients with the new variant and South Africa.
Cough, fever, and loss or change in taste and smell are not among the traditional three Covid symptoms.
Only 50% of people with Omicron experienced the three traditional symptoms, according to the ZOE COVID Study app, which has been collecting data about the symptoms from its app users.
Others have been sickened by symptoms that aren’t on the NHS’s list.
Hair loss is a lesser-known Covid symptom that can also indicate Omicron.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, hair loss is a common symptom of the virus.
After a fever, hair follicles enter the “shedding” phase, which causes hair loss.
This is thought to be a normal reaction to a high temperature, which is a common symptom of Covid.
“Handfuls of hair can come out when you shower or brush your hair,” the health organization continues.
“Hair shedding can last anywhere from six to nine months before stopping.”
The good news is that if Covid is to blame for your hair loss, it usually goes away on its own after a while.
Hair loss is one of the later symptoms of a coronavirus infection, so knowing the early symptoms can be useful.
Because we’ve been living with this new variant for more than a month, some of the symptoms of Omicron have become well-established.
The ZOE COVID Study found the following five symptoms among app users:
South African doctor Angelique Coetzee previously described the throat targeting symptom as “scratchy” in relation to Omicron.
The doctor was the one who first raised the alarm.
