Doctors are worthless (for anything less than surgery)

I'm am so very annoyed, bordering on being ticked off. I hereby officially form the opinion that doctors and the medical profession are worthless for anything short of actual surgery.

I just had my appointment with the doctor about my skin rash. I went there a few minutes before the appointment to fill out the paper work and then a few minutes after two they actually called me back. I then sat in the waiting room for the next thirty minutes or so until the doctor was finally ready to see me. The doctor comes in and I tell him about the rash on my hand, the slight mucus/whatever buildup in my nose over time, the dryness of my face after taking a shower and how the forehead burns if I rub it any for a few hours, and how I can feel air on the back of my throat when I breath through my nose that quickly drys out my throat.

To all that his response basically revolves around "you're dehydrated" / "you're not getting enough liquids". The rash on my hand? Dermatitis / something-or-another; apply a moisturizer daily and it'll clear up but it'll never really go away. The nose thing? Prescribe a decongestant; it's the weather. The throat thing? The air is dry from the heaters; drink more liquid. The forehead thing? I don't see anything right now but it might be something or another; moisturize it.

DAGNABIT! TELL ME SOMETHING I DON'T ALREADY KNOW OR AREN'T ALREADY DOING! OR TELL ME HOW TO KEEP IT FROM HAPPENING! NOT HOW TO REMEDY IT AFTER THE FACT!

Ugh.

So basically I need to soak in a tub of moisturizer on a daily basis. -.-'

*strangles the air*

Edit to add: For the ten or fifteen minutes he was with me it was $65. Dagnabit, I feel ripped off. I want at least some of the money back cause it was so not worth it.
