"Getting seen by a specialist"
Posted by Carsie16 (as ),
I had bad skin for 4 years thanks to a contraceptive i used in my uni years.
As the doctors i had seen kept telling me it would get better with time and giving me oral and topical medication i had already tried and none of it worked, they did not seem to take my concerns into account, i went to see a new GP that i hadn't met before and was quite frustrated.
When i expressed the same concerns i had to previous doctors she accepted my concerns and referred me to dermatology. I saw a specialist within 6 weeks and got brilliant medication which has made a huge difference to my skin and therefore my confidence as well.
Since then she has always been the doctor i have seen and i feel very safe and sure that she will do anything she can to help with anything i am worried about.
