Problem

Living with psoriasis or eczema is associated with terrible itch and patients often rate this, as the most distressing symptom of their condition. Itchiness is a large burden as the itch often can be so intense, that maintaining a normal life can be hard. Current solutions used by people involve non-medical treatments like coconut oil, creams, salt bath, sun, UV light, tar, mud and sleeping with gloves to prevent scratching.

 

Challenge

We are looking for a digital and/or device solution which will enable people with a skin condition such as psoriasis or eczema, to find new relief from their itch or to live more comfortably with their itch.

Note that this challenge is not solely an idea challenge. Participants must eventually submit a proposed solution consisting of software, hardware or other forms of technology.
