What is Clindoxyl?
Clindoxyl is used to treat inflammatory acne vulgaris, a type of acne. It is a combination of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin phosphate. These medicines are better at killing bacteria and lowering the amount of acne pimples on the affected areas
Before applying the product, clean the treatment area with a non medicinal cleanser. Use warm water to rinse and gently dry the area. The medicine works best on clean, dry undamaged skin. When applying the gel, avoid contact with your mouth, eyes or nose.
Apply a thin layer to the affected area as prescribed by your doctor. Once you are finished, wash your hands thoroughly to prevent getting medicine in places where it may cause irritation.
It works best when used as directed every day. Setting an alarm or applying it at a set time can help you remember to use it consistently. It can take 6 weeks to notice any benefit and up to 12 weeks to experience the full effect of the drug. Call your doctor or pharmacist if your condition is not improved or if it grows worse.
Do not use clindoxyl gel more frequently than recommended. This works best with proper use. Taking more medication will not reduce your symptoms and may increase your risk of side effects. Seek medical attention if you experience serious side effects.
Clindoxyl uses two medicines that work better in combination than they would alone to treat acne symptoms. Benzoyl peroxide helps to prevent the growth of bacteria and lowers the skin's oil production, which helps keep pores open. Clindamycin phosphate is an antibiotic that prevents the growth of the bacteria that cause acne.
