Response from Dr. Henry

If I understand the situation from your note-a rash developing 4 years after starting Atripla would rarely be due to the Atripla so would generally search for other explanations. Skin conditions can be notoriously hard to diagnose and treat even in the general population-even more challenging in the setting of HIV infection on treatment. Not possible to be specific without full clinical exam and medical history findings in many/most cases. KH
