I am Dr Wong Soon Tee, Dermatologist based in Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital Singapore. Ask Me Anything! I am a Singapore Ministry of Health-accredited dermatologist who has been helping my patients overcome their medical and cosmetic skin problems for the past 20 years. As a skin specialist, I have special interest in: -Skin health restoration (treatment of acne, scars, pigmentation, eczema, psoriasis, hair and scalp problems) -Skin cancer screening and skin surgery ( skin tumour, skin growths and cysts) -Aesthetic dermatology (skin tightening/firming, natural wrinkle reduction, facial volume/contour restoration) -Immunotherapy for severe extensive urticaria, eczema and psoriasis ( Xolaire, Dupilumab, Sterlara, Temfrya and Consentyx ) I was the Founding Skin Specialist of Raffles Skin and Aesthetic Centre where I practised both adult and paediatric general dermatology and saw many Asian and Caucasian patients from 2002 to 2012. Learning from different specialists from around the world, I helped many patients locally and regionally to rejuvenate their skin aesthetically and naturally. I also administered toxin injections to treat patients with a sweaty face, palms and underarms, helping them overcome this socially embarrassing problem. At my private practice, I provide carefully-evaluated clinical and laser services - I use Classys Ultraformer III for HIFU skin firming, Lumenis Acupulse CO2 laser machine for skin rejuvenation and scar removal, and Lumenis M22 OPT and Helios III Q-Switched ND-Yag laser for acne mark removal, photorejuvenation and lightening pigmentation. Besides doing skin surgery regularly to remove skin cancers, skin growths and cysts, I also have a special interest in treating scars. Learning from Japanese plastic surgeon Dr Rei Ogawa, I offer comprehensive keloid scar management, including topical treatment, injection treatment, laser surgery, excisional surgery and radiation treatment. Between 1998 and 2000, I was awarded the China Medical Board Scholarship for Dermatosurgery and Laser Surgery Training in the United Kingdom. At the same time, I was conferred the Commonwealth Fellowship by the Association of Commonwealth Universities (UK) to research skin cancers at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, Skin Tumour Laboratory. The training that I received under the dermatologic surgeons and plastic surgeons overseas has honed my skills in picking up early skin cancers and removing them.

I had an irritation on my chest as some red spots appeared. They were gone after I applied ointment and washed the area with warm water. The problem is, now there are some small lumps on that spot. If I press them, pus comes out of them. They don’t hurt though. What problem is this, Doc? How to treat it?
I have nail fungus, and the area around my nose is dry, and my scalp itches. Also, I have a problem with excessive dandruff. What should I do? It has been 5 months.
Good afternoon doctor. I have very sensitive facial skin. Under the sun, my face will turn red and acne (big boils) appear. Is there any advice for treating skin like mine?
It has been 10 days since my skin started itching a lot. There are red spots. What medicine should I take to cure it? Thanks
Doctor, on my mother’s armpit there is a round wound. I think it is due to a bump she once had. Now if there is something nudging it, it bleeds. What should we do to treat it?
Doctor, there is fungus on my neck that is watery and painful if I scratch it. I applied some ointment but it didn't get better. How do I cure it, Doc?
Doc, why does the red rash on my skin turn scaly? Does it mean it is getting worse?
Good afternoon, Doctor. Would you give me some advice on how I can treat the acne problem I have on my back? The pimples are big and numerous. I applied some ointment but it only dries them for a while before the new ones keep appearing again. Thank you
A few months ago I had burns on my fingers - the burns are only around the fingers and the hands. But now the tip of my fingers are numb and gardened. Are there any solutions, doc?
