yeah orally, it is good stuff!

I can only seem to find this included in Primrose Oil here in the UK, is it possible my doctor could prescribe it to me? It states that 280mg is present in Primrose Oil, which is under the amount you suggested.

gamma linolenic acid 480mg is good for all dry related things. Lip balm everyday will help too.

Hi thanks for the quick reply!

Do you mean to take gamma linolenic acid orally? Is this something that has to be prescribed by my doctor?  I am in the UK by the way.

I apply lip balm a number of times throughout the day but whenever it ends up rubbing off my lips just shrivle up!

Thanks again

Hi Blood_red_kimono, no need to apologise for anything, I know you probably don't want or need it but I do feel really sorry for you as I can relate to how you are feeling. Admittedly I am no longer at the point where I don't want to leave the house but I do still have days where my mind set over my acne stops me from doing this.

I wish there was a support group for people that suffer from acne to talk together in person. Its just not the same over the Internet. I am tempted to go and see my GP over my acne however I am not convinced that he will understand and with the cut backs at the moment I am hardly the highest of priorities!

Hi thanks for the replys so far!

I didn't think about the self help book option but it might be worth a go. I would like to talk to a counsellor about it really but I doubt my GP will be that understanding and will probably just tell me to stop being silly or take some anxiety tablets, which I definately don't want to do.

I think I suffer from body dysmorphia but on the other hand I do find that I always want to be checking my appearance in mirrors that I feel comfortable with.

Also I too find that checking these forums and the Internet in general does not help matters but I find myself doing it every day!

I really want to stop this constant worrying because I don't think it helps one bit with controlling my acne!

Please keep replying I am keen to hear views from more people!
