Response from Dr. Henry

Some patients when starting HIV drugs such as Triomune can get flare-ups of eosinophilic folliculitis or other conditions that relate to immune reconstitution. Sometimes patients can develop very dry skin that gets irritated easily. The components of Triomune (I believe containing nevirapine, lamivudine, and stavudine) may contribute to some skin problems but switching to another option may be limited by drug availability. When I am uncertain about the cause or how to treat a skin problem I try to get help from a skin specialist (dermatologist) if that is available to you. KH

Is Moriga Leave good with HIV treatment
