This descriptive study was conducted to determine the use of herbal treatment by dermatology patients. The study involved 146 patients who were treated in the dermatology department of a university hospital between 26/11/2017 and 26/05/2018 and agreed to participate in the study. Data were collected using a 29-question information questionnaire prepared by the researchers based on the literature. In addition, a list of plants was given to the patients in the appendix of the information sheet. The Mann-Whitney U test and the Kruskal-Walli’s test were used to compare the data. The Pearson Chi-square test was used to analyze the relationship between the variables. The present study found that the majority of patients were satisfied with the medical treatment they received. It was found that patients who use complementary alternative methods in addition to medical treatment told health professionals about their current situation or felt that information should be given.
