loss of eye brows & lashes
Oct 19, 2011

I have been diagnosed in march 2010. I have lost all my eye brows and my eye lashes. I have started to take atripla last week. will my eye brows grow back now that I am on treatment?

Response from Dr. Henry

I have observed that phenomenon in several patients. HIV infection can occasionally result in loss of eye brow hair. Other conditions can be involved (ie hormone disorders, other medications, auto immune disorders, other infections including syphilis/fungal infections) so a thorough clinical assessment is recommended.
