Does your family have a personal doctor or do you have your own general practitioner? Some families or some people prefer or make sure that they always have a doctor on call especially during emergency cases. They want to make sure that there is someone who will readily be there in case someone gets injured or gets really sick. This is one way of taking care and being responsible of your health. Sickness and diseases are all around whether we like it or not. We can prevent ourselves from having them but sometimes things get out of hand and these diseases still attack our body despite everything that we’ve done.
One of the most exciting activities that a family does is vacation. However, sometimes we can acquire different kinds of diseases and viruses throughout the journey. Isabel will help us with this matter by sharing to us some medical tips for a tropical living.

Whether you’ve just moved to Singapore or you’re just returning from holidays, here’s a reminder of a few viral infections and diseases that come with tropical living. These illnesses are 100% preventable and treatment is thoroughly manageable. And your best ally? A friendly, experienced doctor or General Practitioner.
