Daricha Nazien, Advocate and Ambassador for Prurigo Nodularis Awareness Based in Miami and fluent in Creole, I am Daricha Nazien, a dedicated traveling nurse. My journey with prurigo nodularis (PN):  Shortly after I finished high school in 2016, my symptoms were mistaken for a heat-related rash. As the condition progressed, it became a significant challenge, and I started experiencing intense itching and hard bumps on my skin. Despite facing misdiagnoses and dismissive attitudes towards my pain, my resilience was supported by my family. My mother and sisters were particularly instrumental, helping with treatments like biopsies and cryotherapy. My journey led me to participate in a clinical study at the University of Miami, where I was introduced to Dupixent, a medication that significantly improved my condition. Why I'm NOWINCLUDED: Today, I am passionate about sharing my story to raise awareness about underdiagnosed conditions and advocate for those who suffer in silence. My goal is to empower others by affirming that it’s okay to be different and to have conditions that are not widely understood. Through my role as an ambassador, I hope to inspire a community of support and understanding, helping others feel less alone in their struggles.
