So i went to my GP for acne problems. its nothing severe but its VERY persistent. i've been going to him for years and getting different antibiotics which just do not work. He's just referred me to the hospital and the appointment is the end of october and i just dont want to wait that long ESPECIALLY if at the hospital he says he cant do anything. its got the point where i wont go into shops because all of them have massive mirrors and I HATE seeing the inflammation and redness and the spots, it really gets me down! i've occasionally missed social events because of a few spots! now my spots are no where near severe but very persistent.
i researched this local private hospital and i made my gp surgery fax my referral to them and i have an appointment with the consultant for next wednesday. It's £180 for this one consultation, would you say this is reasonable? I'm kind of at my wits end with my acne, i just want to see if anything else can be done about it!
at the moment because it's summer i'm really quite tanned, so the inflammation is not very visible but the spots are, will the consultant take that into consideration because in winter I will go very pale and the redness is a nightmare then!
anything you have to say if you've been through this would really help!!
