Dermatology

Skin is the largest organ within the body. It acts as a natural barrier to prevent surrounding bacteria and viruses from entering the human body. It also helps to regulate the body temperature through the sweat glands and allow for the formation of Vitamin D with the help of sunlight. However, being the largest organ in the body, it is also the most prone to diseases. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory, dermatological disorders are related to the dysfunctioning of organs within the body. In addition, as many of these diseases appear unsightly or are infectious, they not only result in discomfort but also causes unnecessary stigmata and discrimination.

TCM management of dermatological disorders based on an individual’s body constitution. It is divided into 9 types, Dampness-Heatiness, Qi Deficiency, Blood Deficiency, Allergic, Yang deficiency, Yin deficiency, Qi Stagnation, Phlegm-Dampness and Blood clotting. Thus, the prescription of medications will vary according to the individual’s constitution as well as clinical presentation. Ong Fujian’s topical lotions are produced in-house via the extraction of herbs, thus reducing unpleasant odor and discolouration.

Ong Fujian produced topical lotions include:

  1. Moisturising lotion: Suitable for burns injury. It reduces pain, prevents infection and formation of corns, and accelerates the regrowth of skin.
  2. Dr Eczema Relief Gel: Suitable for Eczema and Psoriasis. It is effective, colourless and odorless, and is suitable for patients with widespread eczema and psoriasis. Applying it topically helps to reduce the unnecessary side effects from prolonged consumption of oral medications.

The treatment of dermatological diseases require the consumption of oral medications, application of topical lotions and possibly an alteration of diet. Duration of treatment is usually lengthier than other conditions and would require strict compliance with the doctors/physicians for the best outcome.

Commonly encountered dermatological conditions: Acne Vulgaris, Eczema, Psoriasis, Warts, Corns, Shingles, Pityriasis rosea, Cold Sore, Palmoplantar Pustulosis, Pemphigoid Vulgaris, Bullous Pemphigoid, Systemic Sclerosis (Scleroderma), CREST Syndrome and Tylosis.
