We had a wonderful, interactive session yesterday evening live on Lazada. Together with Ms Ursula Soh (Founder of Eczema Support Group Singapore) and Jamie (from Ego, sponsor of this event), we answered questions from you on what triggers eczema especially during this pandemic, how we can protect our skin, and what are the ingredients of a good cleanser and moisturizer. If you missed this session, we have another live session coming up on 5th November. Stay tuned!
Dr Koh Hong Yi will be LIVE on Lazada 9pm tonight (Singapore time) to talk about Eczema and how to take care of Eczema-prone skin! Together will be Ms Ursula Soh, founder of Eczema Support Group Singapore. Always had questions on eczema for a dermatologist, but never had the chance to ask? Now is your chance to get them answered Live! Remember to tune in!
On 4th August, Dr Koh Hong Yi delivered a webinar on Optimizing Management Strategies in Atopic Dermatitis. The talk was attended by more than 500 doctors (including dermatologists, paediatricians and GPs) from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam. In the session, Dr Koh covered topics ranging from the essentials of good skin care, food allergy and dust mite allergy.
The main focus of the webinar was on adopting a Pro-Active approach to atopic dermatitis (atopic eczema). Most treatments adopt a Reactive approach – patients apply topical medicines only when eczema flares. Latest research shows that even in normal looking skin in atopic eczema, there is low-level inflammation brewing underneath the surface of the skin. If this is not treated, eczema flares easily with minor triggers. A Pro-Active approach targets this low level inflammation, delaying the time to the next flare up, giving patients more days of non-itchy skin and a better quality of life. Pro-Active treatment is safe, easy to follow, and proven to be effective in clinical trials.
The webinar ended with an engaging Q&A session. Many doctors were interested in how a proactive approach can improve the care of their patients with eczema. Dr Koh thanks the Dermatological Society of Singapore and Leo Pharma for facilitating this educational event.
