How does Clindamycin work?
Clindamycin works by slowly stopping the growth of bacteria which can accumulate in clogged pores and lead to outbreaks. When treating acne, Clindamycin works well in conjunction with benzoyl peroxide or retinoids like adapalene. Clindamycin does not exfoliate, so it might not unclog pores like BHAs (beta hydroxy acid) and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acid).
Clindamycin has anti-inflammatory benefits and works to keep skin radiant and fresh. Regular and consistent use of Clindamycin should produce results in four to six weeks.

Can I use Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion with other medications
Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion may interact with other drugs, so it’s important to tell your medical provider if you are currently taking any other prescription medications or supplements.

What else should I know about Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion?
For best results, be consistent with the application of Clindamycin and try to apply it at the same time every day. If you miss an application, use the medication as soon as you remember.
Because of the alcohol in this product, it is recommended to wait 30 minutes after shaving or washing to allow the skin time to calm before applying. This should help reduce possible irritation and reactions.
Clindamycin is flammable, so keep it away from an open flame and do not use while smoking.
For adults and children 12 and up, a once daily application is recommended. Clindamycin is not recommended for children under 12, although your provider may determine otherwise.
Can Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion help with acne scarring?
While Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion can reduce instances of acne and prevent future scarring and brown spots, it won't help with scarring that you already have. Consult your dermatologist for the best advice regarding acne scarring and how you can treat it.
Is it OK for my preteen to use my Clindamycin Phosphate Lotion?
As with all prescription medications, sharing it with others is not advised. Considering that the medication is prescribed specifically for you and your condition, it may not be appropriate for someone else to use and can cause undue harm. It is best to consult with a physician or dermatologist for the best advice to treat your preteen's acne.
