Do you need a referral from your GP to see a dermatologist in Ontario?


I am from Toronto and I was wondering if I needed to get a referral from my family doctor in order to see a dermatologist. I have acne prone, sensitive and red skin and I have tried Retin-A and have been on Clindoxyl for about a year as my family doctor prescribed me both of these. I am 19 and would love to see a dermatologist. Do I have to go see my family doctor? or can she just fax a referral over? I've seen my GP 5 times since the end of August to last week for rabies shots and a handful of times in June/July because of dizzyness/blackouts so I feel really ridiciously going to the doctor again.

Anyways sorry for rambling, my question remains do I need a referral from my GP? Has anyone in Ontario been through this? OHIP covers dermatologists?
