Singapore: Chinese Sinseh recomendations

Need Recommendations on Traditional Medicines......

I have been to Makuang Traditional Medicine to see Sinseh about my Acne conditions..... think the sinseh is actually specialized in birth and urinary problems based on newspaper cuttings of the sinseh at the clinic......

Makuang Medicines are "chemically proccessed" so that patients do not need to spend time brewing. Medicines are packed into sachels and just need to pour into glass and add water and drink, just like 3-in-1 super coffee mix....

Sinseh told me to take 2 sachels each days for 3 months. Each sachel cost $3, which cost $180 per month. Consultation fee is $8.

Been taking for 2 months. Not very helpful. Wondering was it becasue the medicine are "chemically processed" thus not so useful.....

Thinking if I should resee my western doctor at Yishun 8-11 Clinic and retake Accutane 20 mg (30 pills) at $180....

Pls recomend a good sinseh that specialise in skin problems,

* the name of clinic and it's location,

* name of sinseh,

* specialisation of the sinseh,

* cost of consultations,

* type of treatments (medications, needle jian1jiu3, vacuum ba2guan4, massage.... etc)

* cost of medications,

* the type of medicines (whether it is gather herbs and brewed type or "chemically processed" type),

* durations of treatments, end results, effectiveness......ect and other useful info....

Pls help me and some others....

have took accutane and it works but after not taking it for 2 months, my acne come back...........

I personally never heard any chinese medication that works on acne (I'm Chinese South East Asian btw).

I know at least you shouldn't be mixing East and West medication at the same time.

Also- I don't know what you can do for acne caused by hormonal imbalance...but I know at least for me, constipation can cause acne. So I usually try to detoxify my body by taking colon cleansing pills 3-4 days every month.

Plus I put Retina Micro on my breakouts.
