A new data driven eczema and allergy app, Eczema Tracker, uses copyrighted algorithm to help people prevent eczema flare-ups.
Eczema Tracker is the only app that uses data and algorithms to help identify eczema triggers and provides personalized monthly reports.
“As a parent of a five-year-old with severe full body eczema, I began tracking my son’s triggers in Excel when tests were not providing the answers we needed,” said Nav Gosal, the product mind behind Eczema Tracker. “I tracked his flare-ups for years and eventually I started seeing trends in his foods, environment, and even weather changes. However, manually graphing data was very time consuming. I realized that existing apps in the app store did not look at eczema holistically and I wanted to provide an app that did this.”
As soon as the user logs into the app, Eczema Tracker begins evaluating the user’s symptoms. It starts tracking environmental factors providing the pollen, weather, humidity, and mold levels on location. As data is entered, the app starts analyzing it using what is detected based on location and surroundings to come up with a list of the user’s most probable triggers.The app provides user-friendly graphs and charts that can be shared with doctors.
Eczema Tracker app also produces Monthly Summary Reports, which provide customized data and tips on managing eczema, such as flare-up cycles, potential triggers, and evaluating medicinal usage. The app also offers a quick advice feature that gives the user a brief analysis of symptoms after they’ve answered a relevant questions.
Eczema affects 12% of U.S. children and 3.5% of the population worldwide. Identifying the triggers that cause eczema to flare-up is an ongoing battle for parents, especially since multiple allergens are often involved, including food, environment, and even microbial. Blood and skin tests are not the most reliable source in trigger identification as they can have many false positives and negatives.
“My goal is simple and genuine, to beat eczema using a data driven approach,” said Gosal. “It cannot be cured, but it can be managed to give your child the best life possible with the condition. That’s why the app is for free in the app store.”
The future of Eczema Tracker includes unique features, such as expert advice and eczema probability index, which will tell users the likelihood of being allergic to a trigger, including medicines.
