    People keep telling me to go to a pain dr and I haven’t yet. Maybe that’s the next step. I definitely would take a low dose opioid if it gave me the result I had on the codeine.

    My dermatologist was willing to prescribe but when she discovered it’s not approved in the US, she said she cannot.

    Thank you for the feedback! I’m not seeing periactin - maybe it’s also not available here in the US? I do find Benadryl helps some unless I’m in a really bad flare. I go tomorrow for a Botox...

    Did the nasal spray help in any way. Clearly not a game changer if you aren’t getting more.

    I actually also had a derm suggest low dose Accutane and I started the application process and then got scared. Maybe I should consider it more seriously though.
