HIV Positive not on meds
Jan 19, 2007

I recently blew my nose and blood appeared on the tissue,should I be concerned ad see my doctor?

Response from Dr. Henry

Seeing blood after blowing the nose is fairly common in the general population and most often does not signal a major HIV-related problem. If the problem worsens or other worrisome symptoms (high fever, bleeding elsewhere) develop would see your provider soon otherwise would mention next time you are seen.
