Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


Does any one else have acne that itches??? I have mostly cystic jawline acne, and I just want to tear my nails into my skin at times. It itches so bad. Does any one know what might me making my acne itch and what I can do about it?

I do not have dry skin, but I am on a combination of 10% Benzoyl Peroxide and Clindamycin.
How is the 10% Benzoyl Peroxide and Clindamycin working for you.
I'v always had luck with Doxycycline.
Well, Benzoyl Peroxide has worked very well for me in the past. I am taking the Clindamycin because I am trying to conceive and can't be on things like Retin-A or similar products. I used Differin Gel in the past and that worked--however, I can't be on it now. I have never heard of Doxycycline (and not sure I can be on it pre-pregnancy), but I'll be sure to ask my derm about it. So far the combination of BP and Clindamycin is helping to control the acne, but the key word here is "control." I still break out on a weekly basis, but I think it's keeping the number of pimples from getting out of control.
