I thought being a pediatrician would give me a fairly large advantage in the game of motherhood. Unfortunately, I learned quickly how my preconceived plans and mantras were “cute” in the eyes of my ferocious newborn Evelyn.

Eczema, atopic dermatitis, or just plain itchy skin can ruin your day and make sleeping a challenge. When moisturizers, medicated creams, and antihistamines aren’t enough, you may be offered the new biologic drug, Dupixent. This new drug is highly effective, but also costly (~$37,000/year). Sarasota Clinical Research is participating in a national pharmaceutical trial with this agent, addressing its impact on nighttime itch.  There is no charge for all medication and testing during the trial and you may be compensated for your time and travel.

You may be compensated for your time and travel. Find out more here! -> www.windomallergy.com/clinical-trials
