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. Yes, injection every 2 weeks in either upper thigh or stomach. It's not bad at all... worth every bit of discomfort to get relief. I do get injection site reaction though. Lots of redness that lasts weeks! Nothing is perfect!
I have literally been dealing with these same issues since birth
Sounds like my journey... Only thing that helped me was Dupixent. Ask your Dr about it... Surprised it hasn't been recommended to you!! It's been a miracle for me!
I’m lucky I’m on an experimental treatment. It’s all the time, and stress + no sleep are big offenders, plus some foods. Then add heat and cold and it kind of bites. The treatment helps on good days. On others I haul around my big purse with moisturizers and meds. Sounds like you might be getting some pretty constant stress nfections. You will need to get another dr, get yours to understand, and go to Urgent Care/ER in between. Sorry you are going through this.
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!
