Yes, well I can see a doctor, but I don't want to go without makeup. I could take pictures? I just want a first opinion so I know what to discuss with my doctor and what other things I can do, as I often find that I have to be assertive with what I want from doctors, which means I have to have some idea of what I want/need.
It's not a good picture as I took it with my phone, quite blurry
Thanks. Would you be able to see another doctor--one you don't know at, say, a walk-in clinic?
I'm not clicking the get extra help button, so by responding to you, is it correct that you aren't charging me this extra money every time you respond to me? Anyway, I'm not embarrassed about seeing the doctor, just about travelling there with no makeup on.
No, no extra charge for any extra time we spend here.
I understand your concern but the problem here is there isn't anything you can do on your own for this.
This looks like rosacea--a form of acne. If I were your doctor I would treat it with a month's worth of oral doxycycline and if that didn't do the trick I'd try you on the Yasmin pill.
Here's a thought--you could wear your makeup to the doctor appointment and then remove it before he saw you and then reapply it after he had seen you.
Let me know if you need to discuss this any further, otherwise please remember to rate my service to you
Thanks, ***** ***** try that and see how it goes
