Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


I'm clear! :bouncing: And so, so happy about it.

My chin has been broken out for years with cystic acne. I will have usually about 3 cysts at a time, all the time, year round no matter what I do. I finally got fed up and while at the doctor on November 8th for something unrelated I mentioned to him that I wanted a prescription for something topcial. He prescribed Clindamycin Phosphate (Clinda is in a lot of topical scripts I've found out). Anyway, it's been less than one month and I've not had a single new cyst since then. It took a few days and then they were all gone. Now all I need to do is figure out how to get rid of the red spots left over. I'm using a night cream that should help.

I tell you though, I've never been so thrilled. The results were very quick and I'm so pleased.
im using clindamycin aswell with a steroid cream and its been working off the chain for my chin and mouth area, my whole mouth area used to be so bumpy and full of painful cysts it got to the point where i couldnt open my mouth without feeling a sting of pain. so i went to my physician and she suggested a BP cream at first so i did that and it just dried out my skin and made it worse so i went back and she reccomended me to go to a derm and he prescribed me this. thank god, but as you mentioned the red marks are just a problem but my derm said they'll heal naturally so im pretty happy.
