Taking into account six typical morphological changes (erythema, infiltration, crusts, scratch artifacts, lichenification, dryness of non-infested skin), 0-3 points per criterion are awarded based on an intensity scale (0 = absent, 1 = mild, 2 = moderate, 3 = severe). Furthermore, the percentage of affected skin area (extent in %) and the subjective assessment of symptoms such as itching and sleep loss are included using a visual analogue scale (0-10, max. 20 points).
