A Handbook On Common Skin Diseases

Compiled by: Dr Chong Wei Sheng
Medical Advisors: Prof Chan Kum Wah Roy, Prof Goh Chee Leok


Skin conditions affect everybody. The variety of skin ailments is very wide; some conditions are short-lasting whilst others are chronic and incurable. While most skin conditions are mild, there are others which can be serious and results in debility. They can even be life-threatening. Furthermore, persons of different age, gender and ethnicity have slightly different presentations of skin conditions, and experience different types of skin ailments.

What is often overlooked is the fact that skin conditions often have a serious impact on a person's quality of life. For example, conditions like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis can be as disabling as coronary heart disease.

This handbook is designed for the lay person to learn more about common skin ailments that are encountered in Singapore. We hope that it will provide easily understood, reliable information, and serve as a reference book for readers of all ages.
