That sounds more like an alchohol related incident. Do you drink heavily?

I have them but they are not related HIV or drinking in my case. They are just very prominent veins with my skin type.

It is not related to HIV. This has most likely occurred from genetics, alcohol and or sensory stimulation. Take L-Arginine, an amino acid, which will reduce, if not eliminate, this cosmetic blemish.

ARE THEY POSSIBLY BLOOD VESSELS? ISN'T THIS A SIGN OF HIV?

dude, i got the same thing in my nose, hand, chest, and upper arms. the one on my nose is kinda big but all the others are small. the doc said they were cherry something but i never had them till i put myself at risk. i dont want to scare you but those things scared me too. I have yet to test and still do not know my hiv status. i had protected sex with a pro just 1 time. every1 tells me there is no risk and i should stop worrying.

Hey man, I have the same shit. I was scared as hell becuase I got like 10 of those things within 1 month. I was searching a while back and found this for you. It eased my mined a lot.

To quote Dr. Bob:

"Spidery looking veins are likewise not related to HIV disease. If you are bothered by their cosmetic appearance, a dermatologist can zap them for you."
