Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


I used BP(10%) for years, it kept me pretty clear but it irritated my skin, so I changed to using dalacin (clindamycin). dalacin worked perfectly, I was 100% clear, but now after 3 months I have to use something else, becasue it is a topical antibiotic. I was wondering, does differin cause an initial breakout even if you're 99% clear when you start using it?
I got an inital break out with differin, but the clindamycin helps with that. I've been using both for about 7 months and have pretty clear skin, no big cysts or anything like that - just a couple little ones around "that time of the month".
