I am a 54 yr old African-American female who has severe hand & foot eczema for the past 10 years , I also breakout if i am in the sun (was not born with it ... did not have it as a child). Over the years i have tried everything creams, steroids , phototherapy etc etc..nothing worked. My first dose of Dupixent was July 23rd and every 2 weeks after that. I was expecting to see improvement of my skin and less itching by now, except for the skin not thickening anymore i am still itching like crazy and no clearing of the skin yet. Skin still ugly and itchy... please ... how long does this medication to work? Trying to be patient but does it work for all types of eczema? I only have it on my hands and feet, the rest of my body is clear. Awaiting an answer. Thanks.
My niece had the same thing. The medicine didn't really help her. I always felt bad when she spent the night and my wife and I helped her take off her socks. Was so bad her skin was like infused with the sock. So my wife found this all natural organic soap store in our area and the soaps that was for eczema actually got rid of it. Been gone to very mild for years. Nothing else it's worth a shot.
Hello sister, just took my first two shots of dupixent just been itching lightly .have you tried putting a steroid cream on your feets?
(betamethasone)it helped when I rub it on my feets. hope the dupixent began to work for you and for me where I don't have use the creams.
