Management of eczema not only involves the use of ceramide-dominant moisturisers that help repair the skin barrier and anti-inflammatory agents that help control inflammation/flare, it is also important to know how to measure the severity of the eczema on a daily basis.
Patient Eczema Severity Time (PEST) is a new simple measuring tool for patients or parents to rate the severity of AD on a daily basis. The active involvement of doctors and patients in the management of the condition has been shown to improve treatment outcomes. Hence, it is important to keep a record of the eczema severity on a daily basis.
