With the help of this app and your doctor and through the use of different validated instruments, you will be able to make an assessment of the state of activity, the impact on your quality of life and the degree of control of the disease
The application has three types of questionnaires: with the UAS questionnaire you can record the intensity of the itch and the number of beans present each day. You will also be able to score your angioedema (A) by identifying patterns of frequency, duration and location. Finally, with the quality of life questionnaire (QQV) you will be able to objectively assess how chronic urticaria and angioedema affect you. The combination of these three values, UAS, A, QQV, will allow you and your doctor to make a comprehensive assessment of your Chronic Urticaria. In addition, the application has the possibility of taking photographs and notes that you can share with your doctor along with the results of the questionnaires.
