What is D.R.E.S.S. syndrome? The rare disease changes lives

“D.R.E.S.S. is an acronym and it stands for Drug Rash Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptom,” says Dr. Erin Boh, Md. PhD Chair of the Department of Dermatology and Professor of Dermatology at Tulane University Health. “D.R.E.S.S. is very, very uncommon and we see it with a whole spectrum of medication, so antibiotic, anti-psychotic drugs, anti-inflammatory medicine. Even over-the-counter medications like Ibuprofen, which is super common and people take all the time.”
