Dupixent® (dupilumab) is a biologic, prescription medication that targets a root cause of inflammation in eczema/atopic dermatitis. Dupixent® (dupilumab) is FDA approved for adult patients and children as young as 6 months. This injectable medication can help you get relief from uncomfortable eczema symptoms, like itchy rashes and flare-ups.
In clinical trials, patients were 3x as likely to have clear skin at 52 weeks when taking Dupixent®, compared to patients only using topical corticosteroids (TCS). Patients were also 4x as likely to have significant itch reduction when taking Dupixent®, compared to patients only using topical corticosteroids (TCS).
If your eczema is not improving with other treatment options, and you think you would benefit from Dupixent® (dupilumab), talk to your Tono dermatologist about this medication.
