Yesterday I managed to pluck up the courage to se the gp. I wanted to get a referral to see Dr Chu. That was my main aim for the visit.

He has agreed to do it but only on a private referral not nhs.

I cried my eyes out as soon I mentioned my skin!

He has prescribed me oxytetracycline.

I don't know whether to try this.

It sems like hard work to try and have it on an empty stomach! Food is my comfort and I tend to snack all day so I don't often have a totally empty stomach!

Also I don't see the point in plugging my body with anti biotics.. I mean even if it works.. you can't keep it up forever!

I don't know what to do. I'm so depressed. My neice is getting married in a few months so there will be a lot of social stuff going on and I am terrified. i really want to do something but I don't know what. The more I read on this board the more I get overwhelmed and confused.

Currently I have 4/5 painful bumpy cystic acne on my face. I have acne scarring on both cheeks too(rolling/boxcar/red etc).

I have 3 young children and I am fed up it's not fair.

help!
