Inflammatory skin diseases: psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus

Psoriasis (psoriasis)
Psoriasis (psoriasis) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease based on genetic predisposition. There is an extremely persistent appearance of red scaly patches, for example in the area of ​​the hairy head, knees, elbows or the perianal area. In severe cases, the entire skin can be affected. The therapy for psoriasis vulgaris has changed in recent years. In the best skin doctor in south delhi, both the classic procedures such as ointment therapy, UV light therapy, but also drug therapy forms including the so-called biologicals are established. Prof. Dr. med. von den Driesch is listed in the FOCUS TOP-Mediziner 2019 doctor list for this area.

Eczema Eczema
is an intolerance reaction of the skin, which can have a very different cause. Basically, one can distinguish so-called endogenous eczema (“neurodermatitis”) from contact eczema and eczema from other causes. Since the different forms of eczema always look very similar on the skin and under the microscope, a precise evaluation of the causes of eczema is necessary. This applies in particular to neurodermatitis, an increasingly common disease from which one in four children now suffers. We pay particular attention to these patients. In addition to classic ointment and UV therapies, we also offer drug therapies and extensive allergological investigations.

We are also happy to arrange certified neurodermatitis training for parents of affected children. In the case of eczema caused by work, we are able to pinpoint the cause and, if possible, remedy it. If this is not possible, we support the patient in processing the requirements for compensation from the employers’ liability insurance association.

Lichen planus
The lichen planus is the third most common inflammatory skin disease. Still very little is known about the cause of this condition, which some authors attribute to stress. Our clinic has extensive experience in the treatment of all forms of lichen planus.
