Dermatology in Singapore: how does it work?

19 Oct 2017

When you expatriate, lot of things change: your way of life, your habits, the weather… And all those transformations may have an impact on your body and your skin! In Singapore, the weather is humid, hot and sunny all year long. It is thus possible that you need one day to go to a dermatologist.

 

Dermatology in Singapore

 

There were not that many establishments proposing dermatology services in Singapore, but it becomes more and more accessible in a lot of hospitals, and not only in the National Skin Center as we could imagine.

 

Almost all the hospitals of Singapore have a service dedicated to dermatology, in which we can find basic prestations – eczema, skin itch, alopecia, acne, more removal,.. – or specialization in the treatment of rarest skin diseases.

 

The dermatological area evolves in Singapore, specially at the KK Hospital, where a multidisciplinary service has been created for severe disorders: in the same service, the patient can easily meet dermatologists, psychologists, allergists, social assistants, and more! The goal of such an initiative is to understand the factors of the disease in order to reinforce the treatment by working on several levels and not just on skin treatment.
