Response from Dr. Henry

Skin rash is fairly common within two weeks of starting Atripla and if Atripla related usually will diminish over the next two weeks. Recommend seeing your HIV provider for an evaluation for severity and if other factors are present and to see if any symptomatic treatment would be indicated . KH

Dermatology and ADAP and Horomones, "oh my!"
