In general, acne medication is not taken as directed approximately 50% of the time. This poor adherence with anti-acne treatment may be due to the strong skin side effects suffered by patients.
More and more patients look for information online (600 Milllion Google searches per year), which leads to risk of wrong recommendations and fake tips.
