Best TCM Doctor Singapore for Eczema and Psoriasis
To Recommend TCM Dermatologist 

Eczema
Technically eczema is slightly different and is a more general term, but many physicians and patients will refer to atopic dermatitis and eczema as the same thingEczema and atopic dermatitis are skin diseases where you have rough, red, dry, itchy skin. These diseases are not contagious.

Eczema afflicts people of all ages from as young as babies. Almost everyday I have patients coming to see our Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for eczema.  Often the patients have seen western doctors or National Skin Centre for years. After 4~5 years, the eczema still come and go, never seems to get better or sometimes even got worse. I, TCM physician, PhD of medicine (TCM) have treated many successful Eczema and Psoriasis cases. Normally it takes about 2 ~3 months to get well depending on the duration and severity of the illness.

This lady had very bad eczema on her fingers. She had seen Western GP and the eczema on her fingers come and goes for sometime. He decided to come to consult our TCM physicians.  After several acupuncture and TCM treatment, she was happy that the eczema on her fingers eventually healed.

Our Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) physicians have seen many children with cases of eczema. Most of them had mild to moderate eczema, only a handful of them had very bad eczema.  However, there was one little girl who had very bad eczema.  The parents were very concerned as the girl tended to scratch her leg often and sometimes she scratched until her eczema on her leg bled. The parents had consulted a general practitioner (who practiced Western medicine) for many years, yet her condition did not improve.

She was 8 years old when she came to see me.  She could not go to school as she felt very uncomfortable.  She scratched her eczema on her leg till it bled. The parents had to put her in a stroller to come to see me.

The parents were very concerned particularly the mother who attended to her every day.  She was worried that her daughter might never recover from eczema. However, both parents were very patient and brought her daughter to see me every two weeks.  I treated her with traditional chinese medicine and TCM herbal creams and about 3 months later she got well.  Here are some of her pictures.

Eczema-- a Malay Boy
On May 2011, a Malay Boy, age 2½, came with his parents, suffers from Eczema for one year. He often feels itchy and scratches his hands and legs. The boy was brought to see western doctors many times, but had seen no improvement. His skin was very dry. He scratched until the eczema on her leg bleed. I had prescribed some traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) herbal syrup for him, but he refused to drink. This is a very difficult case to treat as he refused to take medicine. TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) believe that eczema is due to the heat in the lung and the poor function of the spleen. Besides giving him some creams to apply and some Chinese herbal medicine to wash the eczema, I told the mother to refrain him from taking some food which may cause eczema to become worsen.  The parents brought the boy to see me a few times and told me that they had seen some improvement in his eczema. On 2nd Oct 2011, the mother brought the boy to see me again for his cough, she told me that his eczema was better and the skin on his leg was not so dry too.

Over the years, I have seen many patients who complained of having eczema on their palm and sole which were dry and cracked.  They had been suffering from eczema for many years and many of them had seen Western doctors and dermatologists. They said that they had difficulties in doing work and had pain when they walked. 

A man of around 56 yrs old came to see me.  He said his daily routine was to walk round all the departments in his factory to carry out inspection. His sole was very dry and cracked. He felt pain when walking. The eczema improved sometimes and became bad again. Off and on this cycle repeated itself for the last 5 years. He wanted to find a cure for his eczema very badly.

He was introduced to me through his friend. I treated him with acupuncture and prescribed traditional herbal medicine (TCM). I told him that he had to be patient and he would get well in two to three month’s time, but he had to adhere strictly to the treatment regime. Gradually, his palm and sole became less dry and thus did not crack anymore. After two months, the eczema slowly got well but still a little dry. After three months, the eczema on his palm and sole healed completely.

Another woman, age 65, having the same eczema problem on her sole came to see me. Her sole was worse than previous patient. The condition of her sole also improved after two months of TCM treatment and taking oral traditional Chinese medicine.

 Eczema on Palm

There are many patients who have eczema on both palms. Most of these patients are females and they often complain that they could not do household chores. They felt very frustrated when their eczema palms never seem to get well for a long time.  Below are pictures of the palms of a man, age 62, whose eczema on his palms was bad and the skin of his palms started to crack and peel off.  He had this eczema problem for a few years. He came to see me for TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) treatment.  Eventually, his eczema healed.

Eczema --- A Chinese Man

A male patient, age 58,  came to consult me about his eczema on his legs. He told me that he had been to National Skin Centre for his eczema skin problem for one year. He also went for photo-therapy a few times and his conditions were not getting better. Both his legs especially his soles had eczema with very dry skin. The eczema was reddish, sometimes with blisters. The outer layers of his skin at the soles became harden and were peeling and were often itchy. Sometimes when his eczema got worse, he felt pain in his legs when he walked. He came to know me through a friend’s recommendation. I treated him as follows: prescribe traditional Chinese herbal medicine for him to wash his eczema, cream to apply on his eczema and Chinese herbal medicine to take orally. I also told him to abstain from some foods which he had to observe strictly. He got well completely of eczema after three months.

Basically, TCM adopts two methods:  prescribing oral Chinese medicine and external application (内外夹攻). We believe that there is an imbalance of the inner organs; the lung is heaty and the spleen is weak. We also believe these patients have very sensitive skin, therefore they should avoid some foods.

I have treated many types of skin diseases. There are many different types of eczema too. Each time my TCM physicians have to see the actual condition of the eczema skin.  Eczema can be small dot-shaped, coin-shaped, rash-like type and dried skin type. Most often eczema manifests in hands, legs and neck. Sometimes it affects the elbow and the calf only. There are cases that eczema manifests in the abdomen area or the buttock or the thigh or below the breast. There are cases of eczema which healed but the scabs do not drop off and continue to stay on the skin for a long time. There is also eczema with very hard scabs which never disappear for years. But generally, people who suffer from eczema have very dry skin and they often have to apply moisturizer.

Eczema -- A Malay Girl
A Malay girl, age 22, came to see me.  She had eczema on both side of her lower legs for 4-5 yrs.  She had been treated with steroid cream and oral medicine by National Skin Centre, but did not see much improvement.  I gave me her Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to brew and consume. I was surprised  she was willing to take Chinese medicine, especially the brew type.

She came to see me after taking 7 packages of Chinese herbal medicine. I asked her whether her mother brew the herbs for her.  She said she wanted her eczema to get well fast, so she brewed the medicine herself. Surprise? After taking altogether 14 packages of Chinese herbal medicine (she also washed her eczema with  the Chinese herbs). She told me that she was willing to do whatever I asked her to do in order to get well. See the pictures below:

Eczema -- An Indian Man
An Indian man came to see me on, he had eczema on his leg. He has seen western doctor and the eczema did not heal. Many patients who suffers from eczema will normally seeks treatment from western doctors. But when their eczema or Psoriasis do not heal, they may turn to alternate Chinese medicine.  They are willing to try Traditional Chinese Medicine and the TCM treatments.

This Malay patient said that when his eczema was itchy and he could not help it but to scratch it. Although he knew very well that by scratching it, it could make the eczema worse. Our TCM physicians prescribed Chinese Medicine granule powder for him and some cream to apply. Our TCM physician told him to mix the powder with warm water and drink. He came to see me again and the eczema was better.

This elderly lady was brought in to see me by her son, she had very bad eczema, besides eczema, she had diabetes too. She and her son were worried that she would never get well as diabetic patients always recover slower than normal people. 



      Note: redness and swelling on her had subsided too.

People who suffer eczema over a long period of time, may find that they skin are very fragile.  The skin might look alright before sleeping, the next day when they wake up they may find their eczema broken and weeping.  Below is a picture of a young girl who had very bad eczema over 20 years and found that her eczema/skin was broken and weeping.  She came faithfully for treatment and eventually her eczema was healed.  Her eczema on her arm was so bad that there was a big open wound on it.  She came for acupuncture and took traditional Chinese medicine, her eczema eventually gotten well.

This Indian lady came from India, her daughter-in-law was staying in Singapore.  She had very bad eczema on her lower legs when she came to see me.  Her lower legs were swollen and oozing. She came for TCM treatment while she was in Singapore and took two months medicine and returned to India. 

Three months later she came to visit her daughter-in-law again.  Her daughter-in-law was very concerned when she saw her scratching and wanted her eczema to get well.  This time her daughter-in-law saw that her leg eczema had improved at least 50% compared with the last occasion. She saw all the oozing and raised bumps were gone.  So, she brought her to our clinic again.  Again, the mother-in-law took two months medicine and returned to India.  Her daughter-in-law was relieved as her mother-in-law's condition continued to improve and eventually recovered. I praised her daughter-in-law for being so filial to her mother-in-law, she said to me that she loved her mother-in-law and wanted her eczema to get well.   What a wonderful lady she is.

Psoriasis

These days many people suffering from Psoriasis come to our clinic for Psoriasis treatment. They are pleased with the results.

Psoriasis 

牛皮癣(银屑病)


A mother brought her son who has psoriasis to see me. He had psoriasis for half a year and has been treated by Singapore National Skin Centre and was given steroid cream to apply.  His psoriasis did not get better.

The mother said her son is only 10 years old and likes to eat Laksa in school. He has been eating Laksa every day for one year. One day, a few red spots appeared on his hands and slowly developed into psoriasis. She said it could be the toxin (the shrimp in the Laksa) that caused the psoriasis to flare up.

I prescribed traditional Chinese medicine for her son.  Our TCM clinic physicians also gave him a few types of cream to apply on his eczema skin. After he stopped using steroid and the psoriasis slowly flared up all over his body.  Both of his ears were red, swollen and unsightly. Patches of psoriasis were red like roses on his back, chest, hand, elbow and legs. The psoriasis on his scalp was bad.

The mother said all his school friends avoided him and did not want to play with him for fear that it was contagious. I told her to go to the school to ask the teacher to inform the class that psoriasis is not contagious and it will not spread to other people. This way the morale of the child will not be affected.

After taking our traditional Chinese medicine for two months, his psoriasis slowly began to get darker and better.  The center of the psoriasis became normal skin again. But the outer areas around the psoriasis were still red.

The mother helped to apply cream on his body every day and made sure his son ate healthily. I told her to bring her son to the seaside to swim and cover the son’s body with mud after swimming. I also asked her son to lie under the sun to do sun bathing. They took my advice and did it every week. Faithfully, the son took my TCM medication and used my cream to apply on the psoriasis.

Slowly, the psoriasis almost disappeared (95%). So they thought that it should get cured soon. They were slackening in their regime.

One and half months later, psoriasis slowly flared up again. This time it was not so serious. It flared up on his back, hand and leg. The psoriasis was much smaller and the flaking was much less.  
She observed that whenever his son fell and hurt himself, the wound would soon become psoriasis, but this time the wound would only form a scar and heal by itself.

The mother realized that each time after her son ate chicken meat, milk, pork etc., his skin would show more redness the next day. So, she gave the son more vegetables and fruits. The mother also noticed that whenever his son skates for a long time, the next day his psoriasis gets better.  She concludes that exercise is good for his son. She further noticed that the psoriasis around the lids of his eyes slowly disappeared after he skated for three hours.

The mother make sure her son take our traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) faithfully and apply my cream as well as following the regime viz. go swimming, sun bathing etc. Slowly, her son’s psoriasis got better and never flared up again.
