    Post Dalacin-T (clindamycin topical)

    Hey everyone!
    I got my Dalacin-T today through the mail and I'm still debating whether to try it. I know for some people it has made their acne worse (and I really don't want that). I'm also considering waiting until my azelaic (sp?) acid comes through and trying that instead because I have looooooads of red marks.

    My skin isn't actually that bad at the moment apart from the red marks. I have about 2 zits on my forehead, 2 on my chin (the worst part of my face) and about 3 on my jawline. But I really do have SOOOO many red marks (omg I do!!)... espcially around my forehead/chin/jawline and my nose is just red allllll the time (as if it's irritated but I don't think it is).

    So... what have people experienced with topical Clindamycin?
    Does it give you an initial breakout?
    Will it irritate my skin (I have quite sensitive skin)?
    Should I wait for my azelaic acid to come through and use that instead?

    Thanks everyone!!
    Dave

    I use Clindamycin topical along with Retin-A and I used to use it with Differin gel. Both time's my face has cleared, and I like how clindamycin gel doesn't iritate or make my skin red or dry. It's also hard to notice that it was on my face. I love it.

    I have been using Dalacin-T gel for the past few monthes. I don't think it has made a big difference for me, didn't make my face worse or better. I am still breaking out. But I like that the gel is very gentle and it didn't irritate my skin.

    Right. I don't mean to be negative about this stuff but when I was 15yrs old and didn't even have acne I went to the doctors because I had these tiny bumps under my eyes, kinda looked like goose bumps. My doctor was convinced that it was the start of acne. This is my biggest regret that I ever used Dalacin T. I would never recommened this stuff to anyone. Let's put it this way, I never developed acne till I used this stuff. I completely forgot all about it. I could never remember when I got acne in the first place but now you've reminded me. And before you ask, yes it was definately Dalacin T. If you want my advice definately don't use it. But it's your life and you need to make your own choices.

    Thanks for all the info... I think I will wait until I have used the azelaic acid for a few months. If that doesn't work I'll try Dalacin-T.

    I guess part of my decision is because I start university in 3 weeks and I want to make the best impression possible! And I've heard that azelaic acid helps fade red marks (and Dalacin T *could* give me more zits!).

    Thanks again!
    Dave

    Also take into consideration that you'll get a huge negative bias from these boards because, simply, people who are cleared or have clear skin wouldn't have a need to be on these boards.

    anth0r- Whether your comment was directed at me personally or whether it was a generalisation you can f*** off. You know nothing about my condition neither do you know if I do have acne so keep your opinion to yourself.
