Aaron Rodgers COVID Toe is trending.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ description of his experience with ‘COVID toe’ is medically referred to as pernio or chilblains, which is a side effect of the body’s immune response to the virus, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Via WSJ:

“The shred of good news, when it comes to Covid Toes, is that they’re a sign of the body’s strong immune response to the virus.

Recent research, including an October study published in the British Journal of Dermatology, has found that Covid Toes typically occur in younger patients who experience mild symptoms. The problem is that, when the body produces too much of a type of interferon, it can create other problems—and produce Covid Toes.

“The way I would think about it is it’s basically a side effect of how your own immune system is fighting the virus,” said Esther Freeman, a doctor and principal investigator for the Covid-19 Dermatology Registry. “It’s part of our body’s response to the response to the virus. It’s almost too much of a good thing.”
