This is a common problem.

Many patients try to associate taking their medication with a routine daily event such as brushing teeth or applying makeup.

It also helps to keep the medication close to the area where the reminder activity is carried out.

In most cases, if you miss a day of your oral treatment, do not double up the next day; rather, get back to your daily regimen as soon as possible–but there may be different instructions for different oral medications.

Ask your dermatologist or pharmacist about what to do if you miss a dose of your particular medication.
