Dermatitis Health Record Software

People with Dermatitis should keep health records to effectively manage their skin condition and identify patterns or triggers that worsen their symptoms. Maintaining a health journal allows individuals with Dermatitis to track symptoms such as redness, itching, swelling, or skin dryness, providing insights into the frequency and intensity of flare-ups. Recording potential triggers, such as exposure to certain allergens, irritants, or changes in skincare products, can help identify factors that exacerbate their dermatitis.

Additionally, tracking measurements like the severity of skin symptoms using a visual scale or describing the affected areas can provide valuable information on disease progression and response to treatments. Monitoring prescribed medications, including topical creams, antihistamines, or corticosteroids, can ensure proper adherence to the treatment plan. Regularly documenting doctor visits, allergy tests, patch tests, and the outcomes of any skin biopsies or procedures can also help individuals communicate effectively with dermatologists or healthcare providers, enabling timely adjustments to their Dermatitis management and addressing any complications promptly.

Sample health journal entries that can be entered into Goopatient*:
Date: July 28, 2023
To manage my symptoms, I will discontinue the new skincare product #SkinMelt and use only the gentle products recommended by my dermatologist. I will also avoid scratching the affected areas to prevent further irritation.
Today, I noticed red, itchy patches on my elbows and knees, and my skin felt dry and flaky in these areas. I also experienced mild itching and redness on my #face and #neck.
I suspect my symptoms might have been triggered by using a new skincare product #SkinMelt yesterday.
I applied my prescribed topical corticosteroid cream #Betamethasone to the affected areas this morning and before bedtime.
I used a visual scale to rate the severity of #itching and redness, and the scores were moderately high.
I have scheduled an appointment with my dermatologist #Dr.Brown for next week to discuss my recent flare-up and review my skincare routine.
