ConceptFitzpatrick skin type
DescriptionNumerical schema for classifying skin colour type based on reaction to ultraviolet radiation exposure.
UseClassification of skin colour type based on skin tolerance of ultraviolet radiation exposure.
PurposeThe concept of skin typing was developed in 1975 in order to select correct ultraviolet A dosage for treatment of psoriasis with oral methoxsalen, known as photochemotherapy (PUVA) (1,2). It was further developed in subsequent years to include 6 types, ranging from white to black skin, characterised based on skin tolerance of ultraviolet radiation exposure (1,3,4).
