We understand the pressures of being young parents in Singapore.

Between juggling time for work and looking after little children, it can be difficult being young parents in Singapore. Even when you place your child in a school, you can be faced with an situation where your child falls sick unexpectedly often. 

Why is my child getting sick so often?

If your child is in the toddler to preschool age groups, they are still building up their immune system and oftentimes if they are attending school or childcare, they are exposed to multiple forms of viruses constantly.

Sometimes they get the transmissions of infections from their siblings who are also similarly in school. Also, compared to adults, their symptoms take longer to resolve so they appear to remain sick for longer periods.

Is it normal for a child to get sick every month?

For kids going to school or childcare, they can fall sick an average of 11 times a year, which actually amounts to falling sick almost every month! This is quite common so do not be afraid that your child’s immune system is weak!

We stock medications that are commonly prescribed to kids.

Children are not just little adults and they cannot consume medications that are prescribed for adults. There are some medications that are not safe for kids, even between toddlers and preschoolers, and there needs to be relevant dosage adjustment as well. 

We do our best to keep you and your child from going to the hospital.

In addition to treating common conditions for children with medicine suited to their age group, we try our best to educate you on the relevant symptoms to look out for – to decide whether your child can continue to be monitored at home, or whether they need to be brought to the accident and emergency department for urgent review. 

We are parents too.

As parents, we know that children are the pride and joy of your lives. They can bring you a lot of happiness and sometimes unfortunately, a lot of worry, especially when they are fragile in their younger years. 

We try our best to help you manage common conditions in the comfort of your own home, but if situations arise that require further treatment in a hospital setting, we will not hesitate to advise you accordingly as well.
