Dapsone & Children

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone has children that have taken Dapsone, and if so, could you please share your experience. My 12 year old daughter has been initially diagnosed with DH - we're waiting on a second biopsy - and the doctor recommended Dapsone, in addition to going gluten free. Some of the side effects are a bit frightening and I'm on the fence as to whether or not to try this drug. My daughter has DH in all of the typical places, as well as her face. Being 12, she wants the rash GONE - right NOW. I understand her embarrassment, but I want to be sure that whatever we do has no lasting long term repercussions.

Thanks!
