The fifth international Urticariaday2018 will again take place on October 1st. This year’s motto is “Do better!”. This wish applies to all patients in the world who suffer from urticaria, especially those who are affected by the chronic, i.e. long-lasting form of urticaria. That is currently an estimated 70 million people worldwide!

The Urticariaday should encourage all patients with urticaria not to give up but to reclaim their live with the help of other affected patients and doctors. Encourage others too! Share your experiences on how you managed not to give up despite all the difficulties and share your experiences with all patients on www.urticariaday.org or via #uday or #urticariaday. Expand your own network through the large and worldwide active urticaria community and experience support, help and assistance at any time. Because even if it sometimes feels like this – You are not alone with urticaria! Inspire others and organize your own event! How about organizing an urticaria flash mob or setting up a self-help group (if you don’t have one yet)? Make your event known by sharing it on http://urticariaday.org/urticaria-day-2018/events. Perhaps you can convince your doctor to offer an urticaria training for other doctors. Every contribution counts – let’s make the Urticariaday2018 a worldwide success together!

Who are “we”? It’s all of us! Patients, doctors, organisations – you and me. Every person involved in Urticariaday2018 is part of the Urticaria Network. Help us to help you and other patients by spreading the word about Urticariaday2018. Use a variety of communication tools to share information about Urticariaday2018 on October 1st: For example on Twitter or Facebook, by linking to this page or by sharing your experiences with others!

Urticariaday2018 is supported by UCARE – Urticaria Centers of Reference and Excellence and is inspired by UNEV, the urticaria network e.V., daab e.V. and many organisations worldwide. Together we strive to improve the conditions and treatment of patients with allergies and urticaria.
