What A Bonanza!

A lazy Monday... I " ponteng" this afternoon in fact. My girl had an appointment with the the skin specialist in General Hospital at 2.30pm. It was our first time there in the specialist building. Took a lot of signs and directions to reach the Dermatological department.. for those who doesn't know how to read, how ah?

To continue on, waited for nearly half hour before my girl's name was called. When we entered, I was indeed surprised to see a young handsome Chinese Skin Specialist attending to her case. He asked my girl countless questions about her eczema history, I only chipped in when she got sort of "lost" in his questions. After the "interrogation" of the family history, he briefed us on what he was going to give us and how to apply... Good!

Here are the prescriptions he gave us.... I was like "WOW!" so many ah??? From dry skin to acne problem also got... so good... so free! :)

One big "jar" , then 2 smaller ones....
and another 2 flatter ones all for her hands
one Night acne cream
one Day acne cream
for her face...
oh, one more packet of anti-itchiness tablets...

Good Grief! I wonder how much these would cost if we were to go for private doctors!

  5. ya, it's so much cheaper to visit GH than private docs. My mum likes to visit the government clinic for her check-up.

  7. We brought Ethan to the specialist just for a dot on his thigh.. costs us almost RM100 for a tube of some stupid cream dat doesn't even work.. n when we left that dot on its own.. it heals.. !!!!

  8. Yeah, absolutley agreed with you! I normally go to the nearest GH at night to get the medicine, shorter queue! hehe... Only cost a dollar! And they do provides good medication, only if they give the right one! Sometimes, just not so sure about those young doctors!

  11. if you seek private doctor, you'll later need to see a dentist too (ngar thoong lor... soo expensive). My girl has eczema too and I spend more than RM100 per month when she was a baby just on lotions and ointments. Luckily her eczema tamed a little but still get flares now and then. I tried but it was impossible to make an appointment with the paediatric dermatologist at GH .

  13. Claire,
    Hehehe...Exactly your prescribe medicines for acne. Ive tried Benzac and retacnyl cream. These are anti-bacterial and inflammation.

    Ive got other 2 sets of cream for maintaince, erythromycin (sansacne) and Adapalene (Differin).

    This is so effective medicine for pimple or acne. You can consult to your doctor.

  25. if go to private hospital, that amount of meds will cost us a heartache...

    skin specialist should have smooth skin mah..otherwise, nobody will trust his advise if he has skin problem..hehe..

    ReplyDelete
  26. If lucky, you will meet good medical staffs at the gov. hosp. Only paid RM1 and can get so many med.

    If unlucky, your blood pressure will shoot up so so so high until you wanna slap that medical officer's face. I brought YX to see a doc the other day (he was down with slight fever and cough). After taking his temperature, he just kept quite and write and write and write. Then, he said go and collect your med. Curious, I asked if my son got fever. He asnwered me : YOU TENGOK SENDIRI APA SAYA TULIS LA !!!"

  27. any antibiotics? i seriously believe that face or enzema should nnever be treated with antibiotics. although i m no doctor... try natural stuff like hazel water or drink lots of green tea..i m sure u can see effects

    ReplyDelete
  28. May be next time i should like GH instead of Private Hos,, chio chio touch wood touch wood...

    but seriously GH sometimes can be a better choice ,,,

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow so many..Hope they all work for her.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Any first visit to a skin specialist without medicine would simply cost you RM100++! With that pile of cream and medicine, your pocket will surely burnt if you choose not to go for GH!
