Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


I use Retin a micro, clindamycin pledglets (antibiotics),and a BP wash...the combo has worked pretty well for me. I don't get too many zits but i do havr red marks and some indents...hoping RAM will fade some of them. I think my combo is similar to your son's. RAM usually causes an intial breakout but mine wasnt too bad...some breakout more than others...he might get dry, flaky skin but I would persist w/ it. hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply Tater! I'm hoping his initial breakout won't be too bad. But he's still breaking out some every few days anyway, so why not give it a try! I've also read good things about RAM and red marks and indents, hope it help you!

I just read on the RAM info site that BP and retin-a neutralize each other. Do you use your BP wash (I guess a wash wouldn't stay on your skin like a topical would) before applying the RAM, or do you just use it other times of the day?
