App ‘SKIN PEACE’ advises how to use topical corticosteroid for eczema correctly
Free app for patients with eczema conditions, such as atopic dermatitis (AD).
By entering age, gender and the affected body part, the app calculates the right amount of topical treatment per application. To make it easier for patients and their caregivers the app uses a common unit of measurement: the FingerTipUnit (FTU) in the SKIN PEACE dosage finder.
An FTU is the amount of topical product that should be dispensed from fingertip to the first joint of the finger. Since this amount varies largely between adults and children and significantly between infants, toddlers, and children as well, the SKIN PEACE dosage finder app calculates the correct selection of the amount for each group. The proper application of topical corticosteroid is a key factor to a rapid healing and therapeutic success in AD.
