Patient replied :

it is not red right now . just to explain exactly . it is slightly reddish on the top usually. but some days it cannot be seen at all and only can be seen when i wash my face or have a bath. that is all . i have pimples on my face which come and go goo on its own same way this redness sort of disappears . but after washing it is seen . just for anxiety wanted to ask can it be some serious problem .

Thank you for your follow up.
If the nose is not persistently red it could be getting allergic and turning red.
There is really nothing to worry about.
However if it does happen again in near future, please upload a picture for me to review. I will keep the consult open.

Patient replied :

hello thanks again google anxiety please tell me i gave screening tests blood alat < 18 standard <41 . acat 15 standard <37. albumin 41 standard 40-47 . bilirubin total 23.4 standard 3-20.5.
bilirubin direct 7.1 standard was < 7.9 . also did ultrasound and ct scan without contrast all was fine . does that mean liver enzymes are functioning peoperly ?

Only your total bilirubin is slightly elevated.
What are your symptoms?

Patient replied :

no symtoms at all just google anxiety sir and doctor told me to clear all doubts got from google. so this means liver enzymes are functioning properly ? and last question from again google since i know u are a hiv specialit . can late stage cancers cause hiv false negative test. if no then why so that to clear the confusion . thanks in advance

Yes any state with low immunity can lead to false negative results.
You need proper antibodies to be detected for any disease, HIV inclusive.
But specific tests for antigen ( p24, HIV RNA ) will be positive.
