Susanne lives in Germany with her partner, is a busy mum and works in a medical clinic.

Susanne was diagnosed with chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) over 16 years ago. More recently, she was symptom free for 3 years, only to have the itching and swelling suddenly reappear.

Susanne has learnt how to hide the scabs on her legs and deal with the relentless itching that affects her concentration and ability to perform at work. Her beauty arises from the patience, wisdom and perseverance that only come with experience.
