It takes one to know one

Recommended Posts

"Rosacea patients may be susceptible to rely on peer-generated information. Forums can have detrimental outcomes, primarily due to lack of monitoring and the potential for misplaced trust between fellow sufferers, encouraging others to try potentially harmful alternative remedies. Lack of monitoring allows the spread of inaccurate information, which can result in harm. Medical practitioners should be aware of trending online dialogue and self-treatment remedies to facilitate patient safety." [1]

While Ms Riddoch didn't mention the RRDi in her article, the article does have valid points which is why we have solid rules and enforcement on RRDi members who may post. [2]
