We want to make sure you fully understand your treatment. Below outlines the benefits, expectations, and risks with Clindamycin + Benzoyl Peroxide Formula.
This treatment is a lotion that includes two active ingredients. Clindamycin is an antibiotic, while benzoyl peroxide is an antimicrobial. Both kill acne-causing bacteria and decrease inflammation in the skin, thereby treating acne. In addition, benzoyl peroxide prevents antibiotic resistance, which allows the medication to remain effective over time.
If your skin dries easily, apply a facial moisturizer either immediately before, or immediately after.
Side effects include redness, dryness, stinging, irritation, and peeling. Rare side effects include abdominal pain and diarrhea that is watery or bloody.
This medication very rarely can cause severe adverse reactions in some patients. Stop using it and seek emergency help if you experience severe swelling, shortness of breath, or severe diarrhea.
