Wrinkled FingerTips
Nov 10, 2013

My fingers started peeling and then cracked. Now they are wrinkled like if I sat in water for a while, but it's like that all day...I'm on Atripla, I am undetectable and my tcell count is 376...is this due to AIdS or HIV or is it a fungal infection?

Response from Dr. Henry

Wrinkled cracked, peeling fingers would uncommonly be due to either HIV or Atripla. Severe ezcema (dry skin conditions), fungal infection, chemical exposure, and other conditions can cause some of those symptoms. Recommend having your primary care or HIV doctor examine your fingers. I often refer patients with challenging skin problems to a dermatologist for their opinion. KH
