For the First Time – Study Proves Eczema is an Autoimmune Disease

In our house, my almost 20 month old son has eczema.   While it is under control for the most part, he experiences periods of flare ups and has certain problem areas almost always.   During breastfeeding, I myself developed what I was told by a dermatologist was mild eczema on my lips and hands.   The flare ups went away after I stopped breastfeeding unless I am battling a sickness of some kind.  In addition to this, my husband battled horrible eczema as a young child until the age of 8.  Therefore, eczema is an area we are all too familiar with.   With that being said, we found the following article interesting and wanted to share as we smile on this beautiful Saturday…

    Interesting that the Healthline article uses the phrase “For The First Time….” It’s long been known that Eczema is an autoimmune disease. But, it is nice to see them highlighting the Dupilumab study as that has shown extremely good success over the course of the trials.

    It was unfortunate that I washed out of the phase 1 trial. But, my circumstances had my eczema flaring to a point where the pain was far too great while off corticosteroids that I simply couldn’t bear the three month trial period. Other people that have written to me that have received Dupilumab in the phase 2 study have had only good things to say about it.
