Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


Hi, I had acne which was pretty bad in the past, however I dont really have active acne anymore- my skin is pretty much cleared up now from the use of Diane 35. I get pimples occassionally, but the two along the jaw are constantly there (and appeared whilst I had active acne).

I saw a doctor 2 years ago, and they gave me a topical solution called ' clindatech' which contained clindamycin hydrochloride 1% w/v. She wasnt sure if it would work, and I tried it for a couple months, and it had no effect.

It doesnt seem to have puss or anything in it- it's just a small mound of abnormal cells/fibrous tissue inside, the size of a pimple.

Thanks for your help. Does anyone else have any advice?
