Healthline publishes a slideshow with hepatitis rash photos and information. The hepatitis C virus may cause a rash, or the rash may result from liver damage or hepatitis C treatments, notes Healthline.
The rash associated with hepatitis C is red and itchy, reports Healthline. The rash results from the body working to expel the virus, and it may occur over widespread areas of the body. Chronic hepatitis C infection may damage the liver, causing skin symptoms such as patches of severely dry skin, brown skin patches, and severe itching in one particular spot. Additional skin symptoms include the development of spider veins and skin redness. Most rashes caused by the virus occur on the arms, torso and chest, but they may also occur on the face and cause the lips to swell.
