Signs of HIV worsening?
Jun 17, 2006

I have a friend who has yellowish bruising marks on his chest and under arms. Is this a sign of Hiv getting worse? Or is it unrelated?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

While not specific, increased bruising can be a sign of problems of platlets- I'd have your friend see his doctor for a quick evaluation. BY
