    Hi ArkansasDad,

    I’m sorry to hear of your 15 year old daughter who is suffering from severe AD 🙁 For finding a Dupixent clinical trial for adolescents, this clinical trial finder from the National Eczema Association should be most helpful: https://nationaleczema.org/research/clinical-trials/. In the meantime, I am also sharing an article with more information about Dupixent: https://atopicdermatitis.net/dupixent-reviews-how-well-works-side-effects/.

    I hope you are able to find a trial for her that helps. Do keep us posted on how she is doing, our community is here to support you.

    Arkansas Dad,

    I hope that you will keep us informed on how things go with your daughter. My granddaughter just turned 17 and has AD. Good luck and hugs to your daughter. BTW- you’re an awesome dad.

    Hi @arkansasdad ,

    Thank you for sharing about your daughter. It takes great courage and commitment to be vulnerable and seek for support.

    I also grew up with severe AD, and have been 1 of the 2100 people who participated in the clinical trials for Dupixent.

    As Sarah mentioned, the National Eczema Association has great resources for clinical trials.

    We are here to support in anyway. Don’t hesitate to contact us!

    Best,

    Obviously I’m responding a year later(to be fair, I was just hired lol) but just in case you have not heard, Dupixent has now been approved for teens! For quite some time now 🙂 Just posting here anyway just in case you have not heard 🙂 Wishing the best for you and your daughter!
