Dermatology Specialist Clinic
Dermatology is a branch of medicine which is concentrated mostly on the skin, hair and nails. Dermatology is also interested in systemic illnesses which can manifest themselves on the skin. It is advisable to consult a dermatologist when alarming changes appear on the skin or when the feeling of discomfort is felt. This can be pain, itching, the flaking of the skin, excessive dryness, swelling, redness, blemishes, papules or pustules. A group of specialists from St Wojciech’s Hospital in Poznań offer their help in the following cases: acne, psoriasis, eczema, atopic dermatitis and other allergic diseases: lupus, scleroderma, hair loss, nail disorders and other rare diseases of the skin. It is worth turning to a dermatologist about the periodic evaluation of moles. One of the domains of this field is also the study of sexually transmitted diseases (veneric diseases VD). Depending on the disorder, our specialist will conduct proper examinations, for example, a biopsy of the skin or dermoscopy, and will prescribe the right treatment.

Sometimes, however, minor surgical treatments are necessary, such as curettage or electrocoagulation (EC).
