    Help!!!!

    I have this itchy problem in my neck, arms (joints) and leg (also in the joints)..i have been to the Public clinics for help for years...but no use (those doctors only gave me some kind of cream but didn't help me at all). Now, this is getting serious...my skin gets so dry and its unbearable in heat. I have no idea what is the problem.

    Now i want to go to some kind of specialist...Any help??

    I heard this family doctor speak yesterday morning at a business networking event of his interest in skin issues and how he is treating people. His name is Dr. Stephen Chan who is at the Dairy Farm Shopping Centre at Jardine's Lookout.

    He is young, British educated and seemed very positive person with a strong interest in other people. I spoke to him for a bit after and his approach seems to delve deeper into issues with patients. That is a good sign as skin conditions, if severe, can result from underlying medical conditions from the little I know.

    Have you seen a dermatologist as opposed to a regular GP?

    might be either the brand of washing powder you use which you might have an allergy to etc.

    dermatologist? No....

    When i went to the public clinics...those doctors have different reasons...one said i'm born with it (which i think not because it started only a few years ago...and i'm the only one who have it in my family)...the other one said i have eczema... the other one said i'm allergy to something...

    too many reasons...so i'm thinking to go to a dermatologist or a specialist in skin...any help?
