Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


Duac gel will not cause an intial breakout. Duac gel is composed of clindamycin, 1% - benzoyl peroxide, 5%). Benzoyl peroxide has an antibacterial effect. It also has a mild drying effect that allows excess oil and dirt to be washed away. Duac does not keep the pores clear (like Differin, or Tazorac) instead it essentially "kills" the acne.
I have been using Duac gel for months now and i LOVE IT! It "dries" up my acne so fast.
