2. Watch Your Mouth

HHT or Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome is easily identifiable when it affects the tongue and mouth. While lesions on the tongue or mouth bleed less often than in the nose, the fine red vessels can be visually unappealing, especially when they affect the lips. About 80 percent of people who have HHT find their lips, mouth, and tongue are affected. The ailment may even show up on areas of the face are exposed to the sun.
