my dermatologist gave me Clindamycin today i dont know much about the stuff but its a gel in a tube. he told me to put it on with the retin a mico im using cause im still breaking out i also take minocycline...he told me it will help my skin clear up better.has anyone ever used this stuff before??????????any iffo will help thanks
I use Clindamycin gel to help with acne I still have and I am on oral antibiotics too. I have found the Clindamycin really helps (after using it a while) with keeping surface breakouts away (or to a minimum). If I forget to use it for a couple days I can start to get acne popping up. Compared to other topical medicines, I think the Clindamycin does the best job and is the least harsh on my skin.
i use clindamycin pledgets- they're these wipes, like stridex wipes. i used to use the gel and then the foam but my acne is mostly on my back and i likw the pledgets because cover more space.
im also on doxycycline pills and brevoxyl (10% benzoyl) wash.
ive had pretty embarrassing acne for a couple years...and to be honest the prescriptions havent helped much. but if i go off of them it gets worse so i dont :-/
Try not doing anything that has milk, cheese, or dairy products and no processed sugar: Whole Foods here you go or Trader Joes. However, you will not be sorry and even the grocery stores have milk free products.
Try organic coconut milk and almond milk as substitutes.
