Nasal Sprays For Allergic Rhinitis May Lead To Side Effects; This Singaporean GP Explains

Allergic rhinitis is considered one of the most common ailments in Singapore. A study has suggested that approximately 30% of Singaporeans experience some form of allergy.  

This condition involves a type of inflammation in the nose which happens when the immune system overreacts to allergens in the air (talk about being overly sensitive).

A 23-year-old lady asked a question on DxD's question and answer platform. She wanted to find out if using a nasal spray over a long period of time will result in negative side effects. 

Dr Seah Heap Yong, an experienced general practitioner shared his advice. Here’s what he had to say.

Experience Pain When Passing Motion? It Could Be An Anal Fissure. This Doctor Gives Advice On How To Manage It

Anal fissures are literally a pain in the butt. If you’ve had the displeasure of experience this condition, you’re probably familiar with how it can disrupt everyday life. It makes simple activities like moving around, exercising, sitting down, or having a meal, difficult.

In Singapore, anal fissures are (sadly) quite common.

She wanted to find out how are anal fissures treated and if she needs to seek further help. Here's what Dr Seah, an experienced GP had to say.
