I had a REALLY hard time getting authorization for dupixent. But worth all the effort. I'm a baby re injections too so my husband gives me my shots.

Lots of redness that lasts weeks! Nothing is perfect!

Katara, I have all of your symptoms plus deep splits, like cuts, on my hands and feet. Very painful! Prednisone helped, but as soon as I stop taking it, the flare ups are bad again. I’m making an appointment with an allergist. I’m going to look into Dupixent too, based on all the comments. Best wishes to you! I know what you’re going through!
