I woke up with a feeling of bumps on my bottom inner lips. I don't see anything but I feel them. Is that something bad? Also I have a bruise on my left wrist and I don't know what that has to do with anything bad like HIV. I was moving some boxes a couple days ago and I'm wondering if the bruises from that but it's just weird that I feel these bumps on my lips too.

Hi,

Do you see bruises in other area? Any bleeding disorders or taking meds like blood thinner?

You are asking about HIV, any unprotected sex?

Customer reply replied 27 days ago
No other bruises. I have but he says he gets tested and he is good. No blood thinners. I'm thinking I just hit my wrist because I am moving boxes because I am moving so I'm thinking I just hit my wrist or something. As far as my lips I don't know what that is I don't see anything but I feel them
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
On the bruise it looks like there's an area where it's going to peel so I don't know if I cut myself or something
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 27 days ago

Thanks for the information.

Your bruises could be due to localized injury as you are moving, you might have hurt it. Nothing major, it will go away soon. Since he is clean, I don't think you are at risk. The sensation you feel, but don't see anything, it might just an irritation. If you tends to have yeast, then it's common to see irritation and itching. Keep eye on it, does not sound like STDs or anything at this point.

Please let me know if you have any other question for me.

take care.

It's on my bot***** *****p inner lip and it feels like bumps I don't see them and it's probably irritated because I've been messing with it cuz I don't know where they came from I didn't have them last night. As far as the bruise it looks like there's like an area like when something starts to scab I wish I could take a picture and show you
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
No I didn't eat anything new I had a hot dog and I put some salt on it I don't know if that had anything to do with it that was last night though
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
No history of cold sores
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Does this sound hiv-related?
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 27 days ago

It looks like your sensation is from irritation, and salt can do that. This kind of issues recover within afew days to a week. not a major concern

HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 27 days ago

No, this is not HIV. Moreover, he is clean so you are not at risk.

HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 27 days ago

Yes, it does take time and it may vary from person to person. If he is getting tested repeatedly, then he is clean.

If u cut urself and it caused a bruise would u get like a peeling of the skin?
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 27 days ago

I get it. It means you must have hurt and caused skin cut/damage recently. This is minor and suppose to go away within a couple of weeks.

Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Hello?
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Hello? Are u there?
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr. Shah, Doctor replied 27 days ago

Sorry, I had to step out of the computer room.

Those irritations are usualy temporary and likely due to salt or other food. You can drink adequate water and take vit c for speedy recovery.

I hope it helps.

take care
