Yesterday, I went to my GP in the UK and my god, he is hard work.
I went to him about a red patch on my right cheek that seems to have developed and stayed over the last 12/18 months. I also have what looks like a tan line on the left side of my face but it is actually just redness that I personally think is from old acne.
I explained that I used to have acne and he looked at the red patch (didn't even look at my left side as I was sat side on to him) for all of 2 seconds and said "that's not acne, it's eczema of the face.
I used to be on Roaccutane and know it can cause this but this patch is flat and smooth and only irritated when I shave which is when pimple arise! It feels very much to me like acne as it just won't go away but he seemed to just disregard my claims
He casually told me to come back in 3 weeks if the hydrocortisone cream didn't work which he gave me.
Is anyone else's GP very hard work and it seems like they don't want to know?
