Dermatology

A dermatologist deals with the treatment of diseases of the skin, hair and nails, and examines the cancerous lesions of the skin. Preventive screening examinations are also important to prevent skin cancer.
Skin problems are not only aesthetic, but also medical problems. Some skin diseases, for example malignant cancers of the skin, can go unnoticed for a long time, because they do not cause any complaints and are often found in hidden locations. This is why regular screening tests, such as mole screenings, are important.

What complaints should prompt you to visit a dermatologist?

Patients with sensitive skin should attend regular screening tests at least once a year. You should visit a dermatologist in time also with other problems.

  • Rashes, skin lesions
  • Allergic skin diseases (eczema, urticaria)
  • Hair loss
  • Wart
  • Fibroma
  • Mole
  • Acne
  • Ulcer
  • Psoriasis
  • Fungal infection, nail fungus
  • Complications of insect stings
  • Corn
What happens during a dermatology examination?

The dermatologist asks you about your medical history, the type of your complaints, and diseases that run in the family. Then, he/she examines the altered skin surface and proposes a treatment for the problem. During a mole examination, the whole body surface is examined with a special microscope, the dermatoscope. If needed, the physician may request a blood test, or refer the patient to another specialist, for example to a surgeon.
Please bring your previous laboratory results and clinical records to the consultation, as these may contain important information for your attending physician.
