I have been HIV positive for almost three years. I take Atripla to manage the HIV. The past few months I have noticed that my scalp dandruff is worse and worse. Is it possibly from the HIV or Atripla? Or Both? No other skin issues just really bad dandruff.
Dandruff often due to seborrhea of the scalp which is common in the general population and even more common in HIV+ persons. I am not aware of a clear link particularly with Atripla. Recommend discussing with your HIV provider who often can assess and suggest a dandruff treatment/shampoo that is often effective. KH
