hi there

Can anyone recommend a good English-speaking skin care specialist in Zurich? I need a spot check, so to speak.

Hiya,,

oof! hope it's only a routine check mate!!!

Not that you have spotted something that *needs* to be checked out!!

I tell you what,,, this theme has just come up for me again,,,(actually, doesn't matter what season we are in, I still advise caution).

You see, now, in between times, we are getting some sunny days and I have to keep impressing on my youngest girlie the importance of protection against the sun...

She has that red hair and the classic fair skin that goes with it..

I tell my oldest the same, while she is blonde, tho it's true,she has slightly more tolerance than my red haired maiden...

I always try and emphasize the need to "slip, slap, slop" you know, "slip on a t-shirt, slap on a hat, slop on sunscreen "

Yesterday, I got my first real sunburn here, watching said youngests' social football tournament.

I made absolutely sure that she had slathered herself in the stuff, etc....

Trouble is, the day started with an unusual bang and I myself forgot to put on any suncream.

I kept a light long sleeved shirt on for most of the day, tho it was stifling, with no shade whatsoever unless you bring your own!!???.. (playing footie in the height of summer is ludicrous if you ask me!! )

So I now sport the reddest and shiniest face (particularly, my nose)...!!

I'm glad you are looking out for it Sam, it's never to be underestimated, the power of the sun I mean. Well, I know you know it!!!

I cringe when I see the people here at our local pool, lying out there, literally roasting!!!! I can almost here them sizzling....

While it's been drilled into us in the Antipodes how harmful the sun can be, people over here so often ignore the dangers, thinking perhaps it's not so dangerous in Europe (??) or something...

There are warnings but nothing like what I remember as a kid and adult about covering up etc...

I can't emphasize enough how important it is for people to have respect for the sun,,,

please, all you sun bathing, sun lovers,,, take care......

Ros

P.S. I truly hope it's nothing to worry about.

P .P.S Thanks for bringing the subject up, I was heading towards it myself.....

Re: English-speaking melanoma/skin doctor in Zurich?

Well said, I think every Swiss needs to learn and embrace the slip, slap, slop adage. I recall the Swiss have the highest rate of skin cancer in Europe?

To the poster, search on the US embassy site for a doctor list, they should have an english speaking dermatologist in Zurich on it...or search this forum, I posted the link once.

Thanks too Ros - it's just for a routine check of a few odd spots. I haven't had a checkup for 5 years, and I had a spot removed 10 years ago. Being freckled it doesn't take much at all for me to get sunburn. Both my parents had spots removed at different times, but that was from a lifetime in the Southland sun. These days, I only wear factor 30 sunblock when I'm doing anything prolonged outside...

cheers
Sam

Re: English-speaking melanoma/skin doctor in Zurich?

You should call the university hospital and ask them for a reference. you will be surprised how many doctors, especially specialists, speak English.

Here is a few to try. I think you will find a Kiwi-speaking one if you try hard enough.

Re: English-speaking melanoma/skin doctor in Zurich?

I was given this reference by my U.S.-based dermatologist, who happens to specialize in skin cancer. Cannot comment personally, as I have yet to meet with him (luckily).

Re: English-speaking melanoma/skin doctor in Zurich?

This thread may be a bit old, but maybe somebody can still indicate an English-speaking skin doctor around Zurich?

Re: English-speaking melanoma/skin doctor in Zurich?

Hello,

I normally 'lurk' rather than post but I can help with this one!

I used to work in the dermatology clinic at the UniversitätsSpital. Their information (http://www.dermatologie.usz.ch/Seiten/default.aspx) is all in German but very few of the doctors *don't* speak English.

I can personally recommend Rappjderm, just down the lake a bit in Rapperswil (http://www.rappjderm.ch/). This is where I go. All the doctors and nurses speak English. I've been for general skin check, and for cosmetic procedures, and I fully recommend their practice. Very fast and friendly.

Hope that helps

Like KitUno1 said, it would be extremely uncommon if the doctors do not speak English.

Nevertheless if you need a name, go for Professor Dummer, Unispital Zurich.
