"Very disappointed with my treatment"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Dermatology

Was referred by my Gp, saw consultant and explained my symptoms. I believe my consultants opinion was determined by the letter from previous appointments and the treatment was wholly inadequate. I have a problem with a fungal infection inside my body and was given a few simple tests for an infection of the skin to which the results were returned as negative. I was then dismissed by the consultant as a hypochondriac and am now forced to purchase tablets to treat my condition from the intrnet.
