Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI)
The DLQI is a questionnaire with 10 items. Although not pruritus-specific, it can be used to measure the quality of life of dermatological patients. The DLQI is often used for assessing dermatoses and their impact on the health-related quality of life, focusing mainly on patient functioning and less on mental impairment.
