Abstract

Face and neck dermatitis in the atopic dermatitis patient is a diagnostically challenging entity with broad differential diagnoses. Recent case reports reporting face and neck dermatitis in patients on dupilumab therapy have added further complexity to diagnosis and management. Herein, we discuss a broad diagnostic algorithm and practical management strategy for recalcitrant face and neck dermatitis in the atopic patient with an emphasis on face and neck dermatitis associated with dupilumab therapy. Our aim is to raise awareness about the probable entity of drug-associated face and neck dermatitis and share a practical management strategy that may also be applied broadly to atopic dermatitis patients presenting with face and neck dermatitis.
