I thought I have taken the necessary steps keeping Yvette’s delicate skin as “clean” as possible. This Pot of Gold has indeed help me in doing this job. Rarely I do see much rash on her skin after we consulted the doctor at National Skin Centre a year ago. However I know Eczema is something that is not easily able to “treat”. Sometimes it will stay with the child forever and ever. And after a year, it really come back to hound us again.
For the past one week, Yvette had been complaining to us, the itch on her thigh again. (It is always this area that is most easily affected. I guess it is due to she will sit anywhere in school or sometimes even when we were out in the bookstore; she actually sits in front of the books to read by herself.)
Sigh. This is something we can’t ignore. It is affecting her so much. (The rashes are not apparent when I am taking the picture. Actually only part of the rashes are red. Some part of the skin are rough but not able to capture down with my iPhone.)
Sometimes she will wake up in the middle of the night – crying; telling us how itchy it is. I gave a call to National Skin Centre and wanted to book an appointment for her but the earliest appointment I could get was – One month later with the same doctor; 4 days later with another doctor. Woo… that is a long wait!!! As such I posted on my Facebook to ask friend to recommend me good skin doctor.
I managed to get one from my BFF on Facebook. (Actually I got another two recommendations from colleagues too.) I decided to go for this doctor because it is located in neighborhood and the wait to see him is so much shorter. (He allows patient to walk in. As for the other two, one at Paragon. Another at Mt E.) I took half a day leave to bring Yvette there.
This clinic is located in Ghim Moh and this doctor has “strange” operating hour. (Two slot. AM is from 9 am to 2 pm, PM is from 4pm to 8 pm.) We picked up Yvette at 3pm while she was still napping. We decided to wake her up because we didn’t want to obstruct the lesson. (Another reason is, I think having two hours nap (nap time is 1 pm to 3.30 pm) will be sufficient for her already.)
His clinic impressed me. There are a few piece of toys in his glass cabinet and a few more robots inside his room. He is a “weird” doctor (in the way he speaks and of course the setting of this clinic) but he has proven he can do the job. (He is highly recommended by my BFF because 3 of her classmates are using him for their children.) He also shown us picture he had taken on how he had treated some children with even more serious Eczema problem than Yvette.
He told us Eczema is generic but it is not true for our case. None of us has Eczema and neither of us has sinus in the morning. Oh well, nevertheless he will have to treat her.
After spending about 15 mins in his clinic, after some discussion, we were given one bottle of wash, two bottle of cream. And all these cost us S$135. Honestly, I didn’t find him expensive but I am not too sure for now, will his medication works for Yvette.
I shall not disclose which clinic we went for now and only reveal when the medication is taking effect on Yvette.
Hope it works.
