Hi, you should bring your grandmom to see her doctor, and let the doctor who prescribed the antibiotics know about the diarrhoea that she is experiencing. It's quite common for the elderly to get diarrheoa after discharge from hospital, especially after being given antibiotics. ...

I understand from your question that you may be suffering from a type of acne called nodular cystic acne? Aczone is a possible treatment option but is quite outdated and not a first line topical medicine for acne. This drug review shows that it has lower response rate that currently available tr...

Sorry to hear that you are troubled with post acne red marks. Laser is indeed the best way of removing these marks. We usually use the pulsed dye laser (VBEAM) as it is excellent in shutting down the blood vessels and resulting in fading even after 1-3 sessions. In terms of ...

In my humble opinion, it is still wise to find out the cause of your child’s stomach pain. In my experience, some of the more common causes include (but not limited to) non-specific abdominal colic, constipation, stomach flu and even appendicitis (which is a surgical emergency...

Hi Jing Ni, Natural does not always equate to safety. We have heard of poisonous plants and fruits in the nature which can have detrimental effects when consumed. However, the herbs that a physician prescribes has been used over thousand of years and proven to be safe. ...
