Inflammatory Skin Diseases
Psoriasis is the most common inflammatory skin condition that may strongly interfere with life-quality. Recent findings on the pathogenetic mechanisms of the disease and the reasons causing its clinical manifestation have lead to the development of new effective therapies, also applicable in out-patients.
Acne and Rosacea are common inflammatory disorders of the sebaceous gland. Acne primarily affects the face, chest and back, whereas rosacea in mainly limited to the face as a light-exposed area, showing erythema, inflammatory papules and pustules. Using updated therapeutic agents, acne and rosacea can be treated gently and effectively, thus restoring smooth and healthy skin.
The development of the so called white skin cancer is an increasing worldwide problem, however, the condition can be treated effectively in almost all cases, if early diagnosed. Melanomas are subject for special care, also requiring individual advice and regular visits for prevention. The frequency of skin cancer prevention examinations is recommended by us based on the patient´s individual skin profile, as evaluated at the first visit.
Today, skin cancer can be treated through surgical interventions and modalities to stimulate the innate immune response, also using biomolecular approaches and the use of light sources in photodynamic therapies.
Allergic conditions such as hay fever, food intolerances, contact dermatitis and atopic eczemas can be closely analyzed in their particular causes through skin testing and other laboratory methods. Specific diagnostics frequently open the door to the alleviation of clinical cure. Taking care of these conditions is a special aim of our work.
