The SCORAD (Scoring atopic dermatitis) is the severity score used for atopic dermatitis. It was created and validated in 1990 by a group of experts: the European Task Force on Atopic Dermatitis.
Published in "Dermatology in 1993; 186(1): 23-31 Consensus Report of the European Task Force on Atopic Dermatitis."
The SCORAD can be completed in two ways:
NEW ! On a multimedia device : with the SCORAD software
This application allows you to complete a rapid assessment during consultations and save your patients’ SCORAD with every visit.
An assessment score helps the physician to better manage and treat the patient. This new applet takes into account the differences between three skin types: white, dark and Asian skin and offers the possibility to take photos of the significant lesions.
You can refer to the illustrations, if necessary, when scoring symptoms (all skin types).
If you wish, you can use the illustrations to teach patients how to recognize their symptoms.
With this application, you can export patients’ overall SCORAD by e-mail in order to complete their dossier.
This application allows you to export data in html format (to be converted into .xls) if your patient’s SCORAD is a study endpoint.
The SCORAD application is available for Mac, PC, tablets and smartphones (iPad, iPhone and Android).
On paper : with the SCORAD sheet
The Scorad is available in paper form - a sheet that the doctor fills out during every consultation in order to obtain a score.
This provides a way to follow the evolution of the patient's atopic dermatitis.
How should the SCORAD calculation sheet be used?
...for a fast, simple evaluation of atopic eczema completed by the patient themselves!
