Redness?
      #9531 - 09/12/00 04:37 PM

Here is my situation: When I scratch my skin due to itchyness, it tends to become very red and the scratch marks become cleary visible, yet fades after about 5 minutes. My question is whether this is normal in every person or whether HIV makes the skin more prone to redness when pressure is applied. Is this is the same as anemia or throbocytpenia where the skin bruises easliy? Can this be considered bruising? rash? I had a low risk exposure some time ago...

While I don't know the cause for the symptoms, I did have the same skin problem some time ago. However one thing I can asssure you that I was tested negative when developing such skin symptoms at that time.

Oh please man, Mr. Red, please STOP scratching your skin and do something productive. Of course everyone will get red skin if someone scratch his/her skin. Get a grip!
