The IDQoL is a validated questionnaire [5,27] that consists of 10 items regarding physical symptoms, disturbance of normal activities and sleep, and problems with bathing and dressing. Each item was scored 0–3 with a maximum score of 30, where higher scores represent a poorer quality of life [27], however, there are not validated score bands. An additional question was scored separately regarding the severity of dermatitis from 0 = ‘None’ to 4 = ‘Extremely severe’ as perceived by the caretaker.

Both the POEM and IDQoL are recommended as core instruments for AD research by the Harmonising Outcome Measures for Eczema international working group [28].
