The Six Area, Six Sign Atopic Dermatitis severity score has proved to be a simple and effective system for recording and monitoring disease activity in atopic dermatitis. The score is obtained by grading six signs (erythema, exudation, excoriation, dryness, cracking and lichenification), each on a scale of () (absent), 1 (mild), 2 (moderate), or 3 (severe), at each of six sites; arms, hands, legs, feet, head and neck, trunk. The maximum score is 108.
