Skin problems

A beautiful and healthy skin is something that everybody wants. We can achieve it by providing the right care for our skin and observing its changes. Itches, rashes, dryness of the skin, acne and other changes of the skin are signs of health problems that need treatment.

Suspicious changes on the skin or mucous membrane should be shown to the doctor at the right time to avoid their development into malignant skin cancer. Prevention techniques include avoiding skin damage, regular observing of formations on the skin and treatment of dermatitis.

„Melanoma is a dangerous form of skin cancer that could develop from birthmarks, but it could be treated with a sufficiently early intervention,“ explains the birthmark examination specialist Laura Nulk.

An examination of birthmarks gives peace of mind

Melanoma is a very dangerous form of skin cancer, but with early detection, it is treatable. Melanoma can develop from birthmarks; therefore you should track any changes that occur on your skin.

If you have any concerns about your birthmarks, come to Confido Private Medical Centre for a teledermoscopic Dermtest, which will help to distinguish between malignant and benign skin growths.

At your appointment, a dermascopic photo will be taken of the birthmark or marks that are of concern and they will be sent to a specialist for consultation at the Dr Niine Dermatology Clinic. Usually 1-3 birthmarks are photographed. The whole body is not assessed at this point, this is a first examination of the birthmarks with the ability to track them in the future.
