DANIEL MWIMBE: My take on the issue of Savlon
Kindly consult a Pharmacist whenever you are talking about Medicines and medical products.
If it is to do with an illness and medical conditions, consult your clinician who may either be a Doctor, Nurse or a Clinical Officers for expert view, depending on who is available in your area.
All medical experts are specialized in their own fields of study and well qualified to advise you on all issues in line with their line of expertise.
A Biomedical Scientist will advise you on many issues to do with disease diagnosis including drug screening but the fact that a Biomedical Scientist deals with drug screening and sensitivities does not make him a pharmaceutical expert.
Same applies to a Doctor.
A Pharmacist will advise you on disease diagnosis, but that does not make him a medical laboratory expert.
All these Giants are specialized in their own fields of study and none of the is an expert of another field.
Our common goal remains a patient and how we can use all these beautiful but different skills to the benefits of the patient.
Let’s appreciate our boundaries of practice and all these arguments will vanish. We are stronger together💪 and weaker when divided.
