Where can I get Neoderm in Singapore?
As Neoderm is an antibiotic agent, you will need a prescription from a doctor to buy one in Singapore. You can consult your family doctor if you have any skin infections that require Neoderm cream.
If you already have a prescription, you may check with the prescription counters of major pharmacies on the availability of the drug. Gentriderm is another brand that has the exact drug composition as Neoderm and is available in Singapore with prescription.
