Whiteheads! What a nuisance to what might otherwise be clear, smooth skin.
They can be considered one of the more common mild acne symptoms out there. When you look into the mirror, you might notice some small, round, white bumps on your skin's surface. It's not easy to get rid of these pesky bumps! A lot of them persist even after facial extractions.
This was the plight faced by a DxD reader. He wanted to know why his whiteheads are recurring even after thorough facial extractions.
He wondered if he should continue the extractions to remove the whiteheads or if he should try other medication. Doctors from the DxD community responded with their best advice.
Meet Mdm Pan Mei Yun, a Singaporean lady who's suffered from knee pain for more than a decade.
10 years ago, she often experienced numbness and pain in both her hands and legs. After a thorough medical examination, she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.
At times, the pain was so crippling that she found it difficult to go about with her daily tasks. She could hardly walk to the toilet, let alone shower while standing. She had to be seated on a chair when she took her bath.
Mdm Pan shares her story with DxD in this exclusive feature.

When it comes to food and nutrition, you’ve likely been eating up a lot of less-than-true diet information. There are way too many food myths floating out there!

Meet Dr Samintharaj Kumar, a passionate dentist and the founder of Nuffield Dental Clinics. He was also the one who brought the All on 4 (a revolutionary dental technique) invented by Professor Paulo Malo to Singapore.
He decided to specialise in the field of dentistry because he feels that dentistry lends itself to both the science and the art of crafting smiles, which suits him perfectly in terms of personality.
He was intrigued by the fact that without surgery, he could help people look better and improve their outlook on life. To him, beauty is all about retaining the essence of who you are, without changing too much.
Watch to find out what he likes about dentistry, his nifty tricks on how to make a patient relax, and his motto in life.
