What is the eEASI
eEASI is an assessment tool used to measure the extent and severity of eczema, an inflammation of the dermis resulting in red, itchy, swollen patches of skin.
How to use the eEASI
Select if the patient is under or above 8 years of age. Then, select a body region for assessment:
Assess the extent of eczema on that body region, giving it a score between 0 and 6 based on the percentage of involvement;
Assess the severity of four signs (Erythema, Edema/papulation, Excoriation, and Lichenification) in that body region.
If more than one body region is affected, click on that body region and repeat the steps to get the final score.
The assessed parameters are then counted to provide a final score between 0-72.

The impact of Eczema
Eczema is a skin condition characterized by patches of inflamed, itchy, red, cracked, and swollen skin. The term "eczema" and "dermatitis" are often used interchangeably, with the most commonly condition being atopic eczema/dermatitis. Atopic eczema is an inflammation of the dermal layer of the skin resulting in inflamed, red, sometimes blistered, and rough patches of skin.
The condition is chronic, prone to relapse and often extremely pruritic. While the condition may occur at any age, it is most common in childhood and severity varies throughout the life cycle. The exact cause is unclear but it is known to result from a combination of genetic (hereditary) and environmental factors.
Atopic eczema has a severely negative effect on quality of life (QoL), with patients reporting skin damage, soreness, sleep deprivation (due to itching), activity restriction and depression. The lifestyle burden cannot be underestimated with frequent doctor visits, special clothing and the need to constantly apply messy topical ointments adding to the patient distress. Children with severe cases tend to have a smaller social circle and participate in fewer group activities than their peers.
They are also at higher risk for developing depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders. The burden is also carried by parents, who report of a lack of sleep and privacy (often due to co-sleeping), treatment-related financial expenditures, and feelings of hopelessness, guilt, and depression. It's estimated that parents of children with moderate to severe atopic eczema spend up to 3 hours a day caring for their children's skin.
eEASI is straightforward to use, thanks to the clear pictures for the classification of eczema spread and severity it is easy to understand regardless if you are a doctor or a patient.
