Here are some photos of my current skin condition: http://imgur.com/a/Fo63bXo

I was given a cream called Daktarin to use about five years ago, I believe this to be an anti-fungal cream. I went to the doctor's about a year ago and I was given another cream called Centraben as I was told Daktarin isn't needed anymore.

Looking at the progress, I can see my skin getting worse, around my elbow area it gets red, especially after a shower. In other areas is getting dry and starts to peel.

Is there a private clinic in the UK I can visit so I can get properly examined? I believe my doctor's aren't best advising me unfortunately. I am willing to travel.

Thank you.

Have you asked to be referred to a dermotologist, a skin specialist?

Might be worth going to see your GP more than twice in 5 years before suggesting that they aren't able to advise you...

He didn't say he only went twice he just mentioned the ones he went to where he was given the creams, he could have gone multiple times but only given products on those two occasions.
And to answer your Q are there any private dermatologists where you live? They may be better than the regular GP- google may have some results
