I take atripla for 7 years now but I have a rash. The look like biter. Can it be the medicine the rash in in my arms , neck and back and it. Is itchy

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

If you've been taking your medications without rash for 7 years, I'd think that it would be decidedly unusual for them to be responsible for rash at this point.

I'd suggest a discussion with your health care provider about your situation.

Be well, BY

Can I be of use?
