Does acne have to be severe in order to see a...

Recommended Posts

I'm contemplating seeing a dermatologist for acne on my shoulders, chest, and upper arms, but I can't seriously decide whether or not to go since my acne is so not that severe at all... Should I feel like a fraud for seeing one when, really, it's pretty moderate? I've seen many pics of people here w/ much worse acne... What do y'all think? ...B/C I don't want to perform 'the regimen' of BP on those areas and deal w/ all that... Is a dermo typically really expensive along w/ medication? Would it be cheaper to just stock up on BP and rub that all over?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

An office visit will be from fifty bucks to several hundred depending on who you go to see. If you have half decent insurance, you probably just need to make a co-payment, but might need a referal from your primary depending on your insurance plan, but that's pretty easy to get.

You should *never* feel bad about seeing a derm, or any doctor for that matter if you have questions. That is what they are there for.
