Slow healing cuts
      #25348 - 12/07/01 03:34 PM

Are slow healing cuts a sign of initial infection? I've had a bunch of other symptoms and some small cuts that I've gotten have seem to take weeks to heal whereas before they would only require a couple days????

Hello friend,

That can be a sign of many things...Anemia, Leukemia, Aspirin, change in diet, lack of certain vitamins

Many things can cause slow healing cuts, from the very minor to the extreme...

Go to a doctor...but I doubt it's HIV..

I agree with Shane, There are tons of things that could cause this.

Biggest question to ask is have you had an experience that would make you think you had been possibly infected with HIV? HIV is not easy to get (meaning that there are specific things that you would have to do to get it)

As with anything. Seeing a doctor is always better they trying to figure out things on your own.

Good Luck
