Children’s Dermatology Life Quality Index

A condition-specific measure of the quality of life impact of any skin disease on children aged 4–16 years. It comprises a ten-question scale in written or cartoon form which assesses the domains of physical, social and psychological impact (symptoms and emotions, social relationships, schooling, recreation, sleep and treatment difficulties) of atopic eczema over the previous week. Each question has four answers: not at all = 0, a little = 1, a lot = 2, very much = 3. Thus 0 is the best score and 3 the worst score. The maximum score is 30. It is available in over 20 languages.
