CONDITIONS WE TREAT
HEARING & EAR

Ear and Hearing

Ear infections are quite common and usually present with ear pain, bleeding, ear blockage or smelly ear discharge. Digging one’s ears to try to remove earwax is a frequent risk factor for infection as it may lead to injury of the ear canal skin, eardrum or even deeper structures like the hearing bones.

SKIN PRICK TEST

The test is the most common and cost-effective method of determining a person’s sensitivity to the various allergens. It can also help to determine a person’s degree of sensitivity to the allergens.

WHY DOES MY CHILD HAVE ALLERGIC RHINITIS?

Most allergic diseases are due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. This means that there is usually a family member with asthma, allergic rhinitis or eczema. However, this alone does not account for the increase in allergic diseases that is happening all over the world. Factors in the environment may account for this.

WHAT ARE HOUSE DUST MITES?

House dust mites are microscopic creatures that are found everywhere in mattresses, pillows, bedsheets, clothes, soft toys, sofas and carpets. Allergic individuals who may suffer from asthma, allergic rhinitis or eczema are commonly sensitized (allergic) to these house dust mites. The commonest dust mite in Singapore is called Blomia tropicalis. The droppings of these dust mites is the most common trigger of allergy and asthma.

How Do I Avoid Them ?

Avoid pillows, comforters etc that are made of natural materials (e.g. feathers) & replace them with items made from synthetic fibres
Clothes and books should be stored in a closed cupboard
No stuffed toys and thick heavy curtains in the bedroom
No carpets in the room
Wash bedsheets and pillowcases in hot water (More Than 60°C) once a week
Damp dusting should be used to clean surfaces-avoid feather dusters!
Air-conditioners, if used, should be cleaned regularly
No pets in the room
