Does anyone suffer from seborrheic eczema on the scalp and ears? It’s driving me absolutely crazy and I can’t shower or sleep without pain. I was told to use zinc shampoo and clobetosol but it’s not that effective for me. Thank you 🥲🥲🥲

      @Jenh for my first Dupixent dosage when I had to have two injections on the same day, I chose to inject around my belly button and also my thigh. When I injected my belly, it honestly didn't hurt that much, and I also don't have that much fat in that area. But for the thigh injection, I missed the targeted area by a few inches and injected into a more muscle-y area, which definitely hurt like you said. I only inject in my stomach now since I only have to take one dosage every two weeks. I also use the auto -injectors. It might help your pain to have a pack of ice on the injection site for 20 mins before you inject, which will help numb the area. You can also aim for a more fatty area on your body that will better handle being pierced.

      It’s not too bad - it doesn’t feel great tho 😅. For me it like stings initially and then feels a little worse as the medicine is going into my body. I have to get someone else to give it to me because I still am not able to do it myself. I have like a needle phobia so it took me a long time before I could stay calm when someone was given it to me. I’ve only done it in my thighs so I don’t know what it’s like anywhere else on my body at least. I fcking hate it every time but my skin looks really great so I put up with it. I take it every other week

      I don’t have the same type of eczema that you do, but I have been on Dupixent for just over a year now and my eczema has improved tremendously! I’m not sure if it would be the right treatment type for you but maybe you could look into it.

        @scarletfire do you find that the Dupixant shot hurts pretty bad, like a full on wasp sting? Am I doing it wrong?

      I had this problem too. I went on Dupixent and my eczema has cleared mostly. I also got antibiotic ear drops with a topical steroid and that helped it immensely. For my scalp I would use ketoconazole shampoo prescribed by my dermatologist. I used a silicone scalp brush to make sure the product set in.

      Hi! I recommend seeing a dermatologist to see how bad things are and maybe give you a prescription drug that can work faster..
