Acne is still wrongly considered to be a physiological disorder of puberty, thus preventing many acne sufferers from accessing proper medical care. This ignorance many times ends up in having permanent blemishes on the skin, as well as the psyche of the patient.
Myths like this do injustice to acne sufferers, who endure psychological, social and physical trauma because of acne.
Campaigns of spreading awareness about the availability of proper anti-acne care, about available research and about changing the people’s perspective about acne are largely absent. Moving forward to a bigger goal of spreading awareness about acne, we at ‘Acne Care Clinic’ wish to take our initial step. We propose to observe ‘Acne Day’ on 7th May of each year. It has been seen that observing a day dedicated to the disease has a profound effect on changing the perspective of people at large. We have chosen this day because, on 7th May 1982, the first product containing Isotretinoin was approved by the Food & Drug Administration, USA. Isotretinoin is the most effective anti-acne medication to date. This drug is able to resolve acne as well as is able to prevent sequels of acne.
Help us in this drive to propagate this idea and make it successful enough to reach at an operational level, throughout the world.
