What is National D.R.E.S.S. Syndrome Day?

We celebrate this day each year on July 16. This is an opportunity for our national and international community of patients, loved-ones,  physicians and researchers to come together and honor patients who have had suffered from DRESS and remember those who we have lost. It's also an amazing opportunity to continue educating the general public and medical community about this severe adverse, and potentially fatal drug reaction.

Here are some ways to get involved:

  • Social Media: Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date. Share and repost!

  • Nominate a DRESS Hero: We're celebrating medical professionals who excel at treating and supporting DRESS Syndrome patients, and advancing DRESS research and awareness. Nominate your 2023 Hero: DRESS Hero Form.

  • Make an Origami DRESS: DRESS Syndrome patient Trish folds origami dresses and shares them with her medical teams to help boost awareness of this disease. You can join Trish in folding dresses for DRESS! Create your own origami dress and share across your networks: Origami DRESS folding diagram.

  • Spread the Word: Share information from our Quick Guide to DRESS sheet. Tell your friends, family, colleagues and especially your doctors, nurses, pharmacist, and anyone who interacts with patients!

  • Register Your Case of DRESS Syndrome: Help us track DRESS occurrences and the offending drugs. Register here.

  • Post why DRESS awareness matters to you. Share something about your own experience with DRESS or download one of our DRESS Awareness Matters signs. Fill it out and take a selfie with the sign, or a picture of the sign, and post on social media. Make sure to use the hashtags #DRESSaware #NationalDRESSsyndromeday and tag us @DRESSsyndromefoundation.
