This product is amazing used now for two days the difference is apparent and the skin around my eyes is nearly back to normal ,they will always be bloodshot but at least looking more normal .

Simple allergic drugs like Allegra or Zyntec are available over the counter for getting relief from itching and inflammation. These drugs are prescribed for hives. Apply moisturizing lotion on the rashes and do not allow the skin to dry. Accept that rashes or red itchy bumps will not heal overnight. It takes time for it to appear on the skin and similarly you should understand that it takes sufficient time for getting healed. Your doctor will prescribe you antihistamines or corticosteroids like hydrocortisone. For intense form of rashes he may inject steroid directly on the skin to control irritation. In case of infectious rashes antibiotics are given orally and in the form of topical creams.
Some thoughts about Dupilumab We all need input from patients who have been taking or took the drug. Information on patients on the drug has not been forthcoming. Tell us if you have had good results or no results. Yes, this is anecdotal, but we need some direction. The drug is extremely expensive - why? In my experience seeing patients in the office, I have seen several patients who failed while taking the drug, one patient being given the drug free for a year - why? - to increase the numbers of patients for the FDA, patients on the drug and still using steroids, patients on the drug and stopping steroids but still flaring. What are the real answers in a large group of patients? The studies published were not very positive and many patients dropped out of the study. Where do we stand? I still contend that all of the patients using this medication are RSS individuals and not having bad eczema. What are the long term side effects of this medication?
