3 Steps to Get Started
Clindoxyl® contains clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide and is used for the treatment of acne. Clindamycin is an antibiotic, which works by killing the bacteria that cause acne. Benzoyl peroxide exfoliates your skin, removing excess dead skin cells from your pores. Benzoyl peroxide can also help to kill the bacteria that cause acne.
If you forget to apply a dose of this medication, apply it as soon as you remember. Skip the dose if it is time for the next dose. Apply your next dose at the usual time. Do not apply two doses to make up for the missed dose.
The following side effects are common during the start of the treatment. Consult your doctor immediately if any of the following side effects do not go away or are severe.
Do not use Clindoxyl® Gel if you are currently taking an antibiotic to treat an infection.
Avoid using Clindoxyl® Gel if you are currently using topical tretinoin as the benzoyl peroxide will reduce the effectiveness of topical tretinoin. If combination treatment is required, use the products at different times of the day (eg. one in the morning and the other in the evening).
