Toe discoloration
Oct 17, 2012

Does HIV medication cause the color of the toenail to change?

Response from Dr. Henry

I have rarely seen some nail discoloration from zidovudine and less often emtricitabine or lamuvudine (generallymore common in persons with dark skin). Toenail color changes can be due to fungal infection or other conditions so a toe nail analysis or dermatology consultation may be helpful. KH
