Atripla- Rash/Side Effect
      02/20/11 06:01 PM

Yesterday (saturday) made one week of being on Atripla. I started breaking out all over my body. It looks like chicken pox, small red dots all over my body. I've taken some Bendryl. This morning (Sunday) it is worse. It's covered more of my body and is now on my face. I've read that the Atripla causes this "freckle" rash on the body. It's not like a rash that is a big mass, it's little dots all over. I need to know if this is normal, how long will it last, and when will it go away. I look horrible. I certainly can't go to work like this. I won't be able to call my Doctor's office until tomorrow, and that's if they're open on President's day. Any comments would be very appreciated!
