Thread: any dermatologist to recommend?

  1. #1

    Default any dermatologist to recommend?

    Hi people,

    I need to see a dermatologist for some rashes around my waist which is spreading to the rest of my body.

    Any recommendations? I googled and all I found is cosmetics recommendations at singaporebrides.com .....

    I need a doctor who is good at treating rashes, not pimples....

    HELP

    I live in the north so a doctor at Mt Alvernia or somewhere north will be nice BUT I don't care if I have to go to changi to get myself healed.

    Yeah, I would recommend this too. This old doctor has been practising for the past few decades and had a clinic in Middle Rd, near the former Middle Hospital, before he shifted to the present location. He's highly sought after and his clinic is always packed.

    i suspect what u are having is called "snake" in chinese. This "snake" thing will occur around ur front stomache area, and then slowly spread to the back of ur body... This has nothing to do with cosmetics etc, so no point seeking dermatologists.

    What u should do now is to go to the clinic immediately and get a injection by them. They will also give u some medicine.

    I think you are referring to Shingles.

    The old wives tale is that you will die if you allow the "snake's" head to meet it's tail.

    ah....yes!!!!! i cant remember the english term for this "snake" thing..
    ya.. that's a myth that if the snake head meets the tail i.e. the rash goes round one circle your body, u will die...

    However, this shingles thingy is indeed deadly if not treated quickly.. go see any doctor now..

    I have seen two GPs already. It is not shingles lah as the rash is not painful, just itchy.

    Not too sure if you trust the traditional Chinese method. Its a myth but usefully quite useful.

    IIRC, its something like getting someone born in the year of Tiger and write the Chinese character of "Tiger" or "HU" on your forehead.

    Haha don't ask me the reason coz I've seen that it works personally before!

    One thing though is the chinese herbal remedy seems to help quite a lot, consisting of chrysathenum and Japanese honeysuckle.

    Anyway, today it seems better after the chinese herbs.

    Writing the chinese character "Tiger" has got nothing to do with shingles (snakes) or being born in the year of the Tiger. Writing the character "Tiger" is for those suffering from mump. The character is written in black ink on cheek (or is it neck, can't recall).

    for those who can't write the chinese word... 虎。。。 option is write english... but to write TIGER is going to cover the entire face, else too small to cure the problem... so best bet...

    No lah, the character "Tiger" doesn't have to be big enough to cover the whole face. Just a small one will do. Size of the character got nothing to do with the effect on the disease. I had a small character written on my cheek when I had mump when I was a kid. It was certainly effective.

    cheem... makes the MMR jab redundant...

    maybe they might come out with a pore pack, paste over the mumps for instant relieve... 1000year old formula...
