Treatment of bacterial skin diseases at Dermacare Vienna
There are a number of skin diseases that are caused by bacterial infections. These often lead to purulent inflammations just below the surface of the skin, which vary in size depending on their severity and can occur anywhere on the body. Among the most common skin infections that should be treated by a specialist are impetigo (psoriasis), folliculitis (inflammation of the hair root), as well as all forms of abscesses (from not serious to severe) and boils (abscess as a result of folliculitis).
The experienced dermatologists at Dermacare develop a therapy concept tailored to our patients needs for the diagnosis and treatment of bacterial skin diseases.

Patient oriented treatment concept
The experienced dermatologists at Dermacare develop at diagnosis and treatment for skin diseases a therapy concept tailored to our patients, which is based on the current guidelines.
We attach great importance to a detailed consultation and therefore take the time for a detailed initial interview, during which you will receive all information regarding diagnosis, treatment, treatment options and the course of treatment and during which all your questions will be answered.
In order to optimise diagnosis and treatment, our medical specialists undergo continuous further training and are familiar with the latest treatment methods. As Dermacare is equipped with the latest devices on the market, we offer patients treatment based on the latest scientific and technical knowledge.
Diagnosis and treatment
During the initial consultation at Dermacare, which takes about 30-45 minutes, the attending physician makes the diagnosis and decides on the next step of therapy. Depending on its severity, the infectious site is treated locally with antibiotic ointments, in some cases a small procedure in which the dermatologist opens the abscess solves the problem. In the case of more severe courses and recurring inflammations, a drug therapy with antibiotics is used. In order to identify the strain of bacteria and to treat it specifically, it is possible to take a smear.
It is also important for minor operations to be performed gently, painlessly and as precisely as possible. Before the procedure, you will be informed in detail about the procedure and possible risks involved. After a successful intervention, the next control appointment is usually scheduled 3-14 days later for wound control, changing of dressings and follow-up.
