I can't see why you have a problem finding a dermatologist, you just get your Doctor to refer you. Bear in mind he may not refer you straight away (even if you want to go private).

To see a dermatologist I'm sure you have to be refered and can't go independently even if you find one listed, so it might be an idea to change your Doctor. I'm not saying a different Doctor would refer you straightaway but if your current Doctor is unhelpful it might not do any harm to change anyway. I don't know anything about cosmetic surgeons but I think you would be better off going down the Doctor/ Dermatologist route IMO.

In my experience Doctors tend to try you on various medicines ie antibiotics etc. before they refer you to a dermatologist (even if you go privately) but its worth noting these treatments may work well. Having said that, if you find a more helpful Doctor he may be willing to refer you straightaway, possibly depending on your circumstances.
