Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


Proactiv worked for me for a year. And it worked quickly. I had moderate acne with cysts and I was 90% clear within a month. I bought it after I had already been to the derm and had antibiotics, Retin-A, Differin, Clindymycin, etc...
Actually clindamycin worked as well but I could not take the dryness and peeling. After a year of being on Proactiv I suddenly had a terrible breakout on my jawline and cheeks. This may have been from my hormones and I had just started a new BCP. I called Proactiv and they told me to stop using for 2 weeks and start again. I never started again (this was over a year ago) I am now able to control my breakouts by using dove bar soap and St Ives Apricot scrub. So the cure for each person is different, you just have to find the one that works for you. But I would definitely recommend Proactiv if you are looking for quick results. And you must follow the regimen FAITHFULLY you cannot miss days or stop and start. The only way it will work is if you use it EXACTLY as the instructions say. Good luck and I hope you find something that works for you!!
