iControl Eczema is a simple, patient-friendly tool to assess eczema severity on a daily basis.
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition whose severity can fluctuate. By using iControl Eczema, you and/or your child would be able to assess your eczema on a daily basis and take photos of the affected skin areas. Monitoring your eczema will enable you to know your disease better and manage it more effectively.
With iControl Eczema, you will be able to view your daily eczema scores on a graph. When necessary, you can email this to your doctor or show him the chart during your clinic visits. This will give him better insights into your condition.
You can also set reminders on iControl Eczema to remind you to apply your moisturiser. Various eczema guidelines suggest that moisturisers should be the first line and mainstay of eczema treatment. In particular, ceramide-dominant therapeutic moisturisers would be important in repairing the skin barrier.
iControl Eczema is based on the Patient Eczema Severity Time [PEST] score. For more information on the PEST score, please refer to Mason JM et al., BMC Dermatol 2013. iControl Eczema was co-developed by the School of Information Technology, Nanyang Polytechnic, KK Women's and Children's Hospital, and Hyphens Pharma.
