From the limited description of the foot lesions you provide and without being able to examine the foot it is difficult to make a diagnosis. In my experience such localized skin lesions would usually not be directly related to serous side effects one of the drugs in Atripla. I recommend exam by your HIV specialist and/or a dermatologist (skin specialist)if those lesions persist/worsen. KH
