Dear Patients of the Skin Clinic,
here you will find an overview of the services provided at our clinic. We are delighted to be able to offer you these extensive treatments.
The main task of the clinic is to care for persons suffering from skin diseases in the region whose conditions are serious enough to warrant inpatient treatment. Deserving particular mention in this context are chronic, inflammatory dermatoses such as psoriasis and neurodermatitis, tumour conditions of the skin (malignant melanoma, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma etc.), as well as allergy-related diseases such as insect venom and medicament allergies.
Inpatient admission, discharge and outpatient care are planned in close collaboration – especially with practising GPs – in such a way that a successful treatment and therapy outcome can be guaranteed to the greatest extent. In special cases, outpatients can also be treated after referral by a dermatologist (authorisation).
One focus area at the clinic is on caring for patients with sometimes life-threatening allergies, such as responses to medication or wasp and bee venom.
Diagnosis and treatment of allergies
- Insect venom allergies (allergic reactions to be and wasp venom) – also as outpatients
- Food intolerance
- Allergic reactions to painkillers, antibiotics, local anaesthetics and other medicines
- Allergic responses to ointments and cosmetics (allergic eczema)
- Sunlight allergy
- Obscure episodes of swelling in the soft tissue of the face (angioneurotic oedema)
- Other allergies
Psoriasis and neurodermatitis

Modern wound therapy includes the care of special, poorly healing wounds and the application of special dressing techniques and materials for rapid wound healing. Additional padding tools and specific movement techniques are applied in decubitus prophylactics. Stoma therapy involves surgical procedures to create artificial body openings for excretion. Within this context, our patients receive support, advice and instruction from the beginning.
The wound manager applies the latest scientific insight to look after patients with chronic wounds. In doing so they address the needs of the patient as a human being, and not just their (skin) defects. Each patient requires individual wound treatment that accommodates the different phases of healing.
Moreover, the wound manager looks after patients with stoma, providing assistance before and after the operation. This includes educating and advising the patient from a nursing perspective, also with the help of leaflets, as well as individual adaptation of their care. The objective is to achieve a certain degree of independence in managing the stoma.
