|Bruising of the Skin
Jun 17, 2009
Since Nov 21, 2003, I have been clean from crystal meth. Shortly there after, in March 2004 I found out my status as being HIV+. From that point on, I have taken an active role in my healthcare. Recently I have noticed tat my skin is bruising more easily. At the age of 31, the bruising is alarming to me. What can I do to try to keep me skin at its healthiest.

You may need to have your platelet count checked as well as bleeding indices. Also avoiding NSAIDs such as aspirin or ibuprofen may decreased bruising/bleeding in some patients. Avoiding excessive UV light and seeing a dermatologist if problems persists may be worth considering. KH
