    Question anyone been prescribed Clindamycin cream?

    I was prescribed this the other day and am just wondering if anyone else has used it and how affective it was. It's like a spot treatment kind of cream...you apply it only to the "affected area". So, has anyone used this and how did it go?

    Re: anyone been prescribed Clindamycin cream?

    Just some background info on the type of acne I have...

    I took accutane and was cleared 100% but then about 6 months afterwards, I started getting some mild acne but absolutely nothing compared to the disaster before. Accutane was incredible for me...but I seem to be flaring up during the winter due to the extreme cold and was prescribed this cream.

    I used clindamycin lotion and it was just alright. I don't think it made much of a difference in my skin.

    I agree I used Clindamycin 2% solution it was a waste of money and time.

    hi! I used clindamycin gel for about 1.5 yrs. But actually, what I took was called "Clindoxyl Gel" which I think includes both clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide. It worked for me, but took about 3 months to start working. After 1 yr my skin was clear. However, my doctor switched me to Differin Gel after my acne cleared up with the clindoxyl... then I had a MADD break out
