Is it possible to do online sessions with any dermatologist? like if I was to find a dermatologist in London and video called or sent photos and gave a list of treatments could he prescribe me a treatment ie accutane? I have had no luck with my GP and won’t refer me and even if he did my wait times to even see a specialist is up to 5 months and that was before covid..gp won’t refer me but I have been on 4 antibiotics and creams and breaking out still, surely a verified dermatologist could treat me and just book me in my local doctors for a blood test etc if needed? or what should I do? I have seen probably 4 gps at my doctors and none are interested in referring me and during covid my doctors aren’t even seeing people for acne and not even doing video calls, I’m currently on a cream called benzoyl or something that I have been on now probably a year and it seems to have no effect anymore.

Any advice appreciated, should probably add that I used to have acne on my back and chest as well as face but now it’s mostly my face and arms but sometimes chest and I do have scars.

Best thing to do is to call up the dermatology practice that you want and ask them.

Yes now it is possible for you if don't go to the clinic but I would suggest you visit the clinic that the dermotalogist will deeply and properly check and analyzed the acne and treat it well...

These GP's don't get me wrong do such a lovely job, but when you asked to be referred or your in need of a specialist you get turned down, never understood this!
