  • By nebi55

    my adult daughter just started dupixent..had her intial 2 shots and 2 weeks later one shot. seemed to be a little bit better but now she broke out in shingles on her face..we are still hopeful that this new medicine will help and pray that it will as no other medicine has…this disease is so frustrating.
    has anyone else started dupixent and if yes please share your experiences. thank you

    Hi nebi55,

    I am so sorry to hear that your daughter broke out in shingles. You’re not alone in feeling frustrated with this condition. We’re glad you reached out. While the community may chime in with their experiences, we encourage you to talk to your health care provider about her symptoms (if you haven’t done so already). Please keep us posted on her progress.

    Thinking of you,

    Hi, nebi55,

    Any news on your daughter’s progress? Just curious as it’s been a few months. I hope that things have improved for her and that the new medicine is helping! This is an absolutely frustrating disease! My husband recently had shingles and it was very painful for him as he also got the blisters on his face and head. He luckily avoided too much spreading from prompt identification and treatment! I hope your daughter was treated quickly and is doing better now too!

    Sincerely,
    Stefanie (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)
