Hello, Thank you for posing this question. There are a few differences between Aesthetic doctors and Dermatologists. 1. Dermatologists are accredited specialists by the Ministry of Health, which means that they have undergone rigorous post-graduate examinations and specialist ...

Hello, Thank you for the close-up photos, they are very informative. From these photos, there are a few conditions that come to mind, but it will be ideal for you to be assessed by a dermatologist as certain tests need to be done to ascertain the cause. 1. Dyshidrotic eczema:...

Hello, Thanks for writing in with this question as many readers may have the same issue but embarrassed to bring it up. I agree with Dr Abel Soh, you definitely need to have a proper assessment to determine the cause of hirsutism and treat the underlying cause. From a dermato...

Hello, Your question resonates with a lot of readers, there are many people with the same problem! Pigmentation and pores are a source of frustration for many of my patients, both males and females alike. First of all, the harsh sun in Singapore does not help when it comes to...

Hello, These rashes sound quite bothersome to you. From what you have described, they seem to be hives, also known as urticaria. The photo's resolution is low, thus I can only see some vague red bumps. I suppose it may be more obvious if seeing it in person. Hives will sudden...

Hello, It seems like you have new pimples quite frequently. In that case apart from topical treatment you may want to consider oral medicines such as oral doxycycline, erythromycin or even isotretinoin (a Vitamin A derivative) to minimise the occurrence of new pimples. The intense inflammation from...

Hello, Thank you for raising this question as a lot of readers are very concerned about hair issues as well. I can see an area of sparse hair on the crown, but the resolution of the photo is too low to evaluate the hair follicles. If your boyfriend has family members with similar pattern of baldn...

Hello! From the photos, it appears that you have folliculitis, which is inflammation of the hair follicles, resulting in these discrete small red spots on your legs. Due to the limited resolution and extent of the photo, it is difficult to discern how extensive this condition is...
17 Dec 2018
Hello! It is good to hear that you have achieved good control of acne with isotretinoin. The low dose that you are taking now will reduce sebum (oil) production and maintain your condition. From research studies done on adults, low dose isotretinoin showed no side effects to the ...

Hello, This is an interesting question and I guess you have been troubled by it for a long time. Goosebumps develop due to contraction of muscles underneath the skin surface, and these muscles are linked to hair follicles. An example of an occasion where goosebumps may develop is in a cold environ...

Thanks for writing in, this question resonates with a lot of readers. I hope that your acne has improved and you experience less outbreaks now. It is important to minimise the occurrence of new pimples so that you do not have further scars. As the resolution of your photo is li...

Thanks for illustrating your question with a clear photo. You must be troubled by your condition. Varicose veins can occur due to a variety of reasons, for example prolonged standing, pregnancy and genetic factors. You are right, aches and discomfort in the legs can result due ...

Thanks for asking this question as I believe a lot of readers have a similar dilemma: To squeeze or not to squeeze? From your photo, it appears that you do have whiteheads (also known as closed comedones). There is an area of redness on the lower part of the photo, it may be an a...
