Has anyone here used Eucrisa (crisaborole) long term?

Hey you all! This is my first post here so I hope I have posted this in the right place etc.

My son has recently developed an allergy that is causing some mild eczema on the backs of his legs and the creases of his knees. Most of it is manageable with moisturizer but there is one spot that I think we let get bad before we started using the steroid creams and it is almost healed but just will not go away. It comes back within a few days after a 2 week cycle.

The doctor prescribed a small tube of Eucrisa for him and the insurance paid for it, but we are always hesitant to use a new drug with the children unless we have investigated the long term effects a bit more.

Has anyone here used it for 3 or 4 years? Have you experienced any side effects? I'd really appreciate any information you have on this.

  1. Hi .
    I hope you are well. As far as long term side effects, this is still a relatively new drug, so there may not be a straightforward answer for this. However, this is our latest article on the subject -- https://atopicdermatitis.net/pde4-inhibitors. I hope it helps. I would suggest also keeping in close contact with your doctor if you intend on using it long term.
