What is National DRESS Syndrome Day?

Each year, we recognize this holiday worldwide to build awareness of DRESS Syndrome and honor patients who’ve experienced this horrific illness. Our goal is to unite our global community — patients, loved ones, and medical and research professionals — while recognizing those whose lives have forever changed.

Our 2023 theme: DRESS/smarter

The past year saw positive developments in DRESS Syndrome research and awareness. In our 2023 campaign, we recognized the strides we’re making in better understanding DRESS and treating and caring for patients.
