Clindamycin Body Formula.

Clindamycin is a topical antibiotic used to treat acne. It works by targeting breakout-causing bacteria and by decreasing inflammation in the skin.


  1. Cleanse your body with a benzoyl peroxide body wash in the shower
  2. Pat the affected area dry with a towel
  3. Spread the treatment evenly across the affected area
  4. If needed, follow with a body lotion or moisturizer

Helpful tips: Dispense one pump onto your finger then dot the medication across the area before rubbing in to evenly distribute.

Alternatively, dispense 1-2 pumps into your palm and gently rub your hands together before applying.

One pump should be enough to cover the chest, whereas 2 pumps will be needed for the upper back or buttocks.

Use a moisturizer. You can apply a body lotion or moisturizer after the medication to prevent irritation.

Caution: This medication is generally well-tolerated, but possible side effects include redness, dryness, stinging, irritation and peeling.

Do not apply to sensitive sites such as within the anal or genital area.
