Palpieren ist gut – Messen ist besser: Eine erhöhte Hauttemperatur kann Zeichen gesteigerter Stoffwechselprozesse sein und eignet sich daher gut, den Heilungsverlauf nach chirurgischen Eingriffen und Verletzungen zu beurteilen. Doch dabei ist manches zu beachten, damit man nicht die falschen Schlüsse zieht.
