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.

In the next step, assess the severity using four clinical signs (erythema, oedema/papules, excoriation and lichenification) in the respective body region.

 

If more than one body region is affected, click on another body region and repeat the steps until all four body regions are assessed.

 

The EASI score is then determined automatically - it ranges from 0 (no eczema) to 72 (most severe eczema).

Use of the EASI for eczema

Eczema is a skin condition characterised by inflamed, itchy, red, cracked and swollen skin. The terms "eczema" and "dermatitis" are often used interchangeably, with the most common condition being atopic eczema/dermatitis. 


The EASI questionnaire is predominantly used for atopic eczema. It is now the most widely used and has replaced SCORAD, particularly in clinical research.


It is important for practice to use the EASI in conjunction with patient-reported outcomes, especially quality of life (e.g. eDLQI), itching (eItch) and insomnia (eSleep).
