Licking blood on lips during fasting


My lips sometimes bleed and I occasionally lick the blood which comes out with my tongue because it is a small amount. Should I repeat my fast?


You can use a tissue or the like to wipe away the blood during fasting. It is impermissible to swallow any blood because it vitiates fasting.

And God Almighty knows best.
