Dermatology - Hamburg-Eidelstedt site

The field of dermatology deals with the largest organ of our body, the skin. The skin is involved in our movement and elasticity, it gives us our individual appearance and is regarded as a defence organ.

It is about the recognition and therapy of skin diseases. These include chronic inflammatory diseases, tumours, environmental and occupational skin diseases, diseases of the veins and allergies.

Our focus and services

  • Chronic skin diseases (neurodermatitis/psoriasis/rosacea)
  • Acne as a very common skin disease does not only occur in adolescents; it is important to start early with a suitable therapy of the often painful inflammations and thus avoid later scarring; with our examination, above all, the form of acne should be determined
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Infectious diseases of the skin (caused by viruses, fungi or bacteria)
  • Benign and malignant neoplasms of the skin(tumours)
  • Paediatric dermatology (skin diseases in childhood) - children's skin often reacts differently to adult skin, not only in the appearance of diseases but also to the use of externals or internal medications; a sensitive and patient approach, especially in the case of chronic problems in children, also includes the development of an individual and stage-appropriate therapy for skin diseases in children
  • Allergies (hay fever/hives/contact allergies/food allergies)
  • Rosacea - also called "facial rose" or "copper rose"; mainly affects the face; skin disease is treated differently depending on the stage present; counselling on trigger factors as well as medical history also play a role

Our skin diagnostics

  • Skin cancer screening by means of reflected light microscopy (the skin is examined for non-pigmented as well as pigmented skin cancers or their preliminary stages). The aim of this screening is to detect skin cancers as early as possible, especially spinocellular carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma and many other diseases. The current state of health and any previous diseases are also examined.
  • Sample biopsies for the classification of unclear clinical pictures
  • Allergological tests
  • Prick testing (clarification of e.g. hay fever), epicutaneous testing (clarification of e.g. contact allergies)
  • Laboratory examinations
    Smears (virus/bacteria/fungus diagnostics)
    RAST examinations (clarification of e.g. food allergies)
