Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin and erythromycin

benzaclin

I've used Erythromycin before and it has worked very well until I ran out. Fortunately I found another tube of erythromycin back home and I still have my benzoyl peroxide treatment. I am thinking about using both but I'm not sure if it will really help my skin get better or worst. Has anyone tried this method? Does it work? Thanks!
I had some oral surgery about 3 weeks ago. I was prescribed Erythromycin and following that Clindamycin. Approximately a week after I stopped the medication I had a sudden and severe onset of diarrhea. I waited several days and when it didn't stop I saw a family M.D. He ordered a stool culture and some additional tests on the stool all which came out negative.
I have googled Clindamycin and found that there is a link between torsades and Clindamycin. Is this drug in the same family as Erythromycin? Should I be safe and stop taking it. I have been taking it for 4 days and have 1 day left. My infection, which wasn't very bad to start with, is now gone. I have been having an increase of bradycardia and PVCs and I am a bit concerned. I don't have an ICD. Thanks for your help.
No available alternatives to treat the infection have been suggested as my reactions previously have included Amoxicillin, Erythromycin, Clindamycin, and any sulfa based meds. Does anyone know what my Dentist should be suggesting as options...I'm having a root canal tomorrow too... HELP?
Also, antibiotics like Erythromycin, clindamycin and tetracycline are used usually in conjuction with benzoyl peroxide, but these are fore more severe acne.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Lanoxin interacts with erythromycin and rifampicin group of drugs. Aldazide also reacts with erythromycin and clindamycin. Hence though there are no known interactions between the drugs your son is taking and amoxillin and paracetemol, it would be best to consult his treating doctors once or his pediatrician before you start these medications. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Treatment is by topical antibiotics and steroids. Local antibiotics of erythromycin and Clindamycin group also help. Retenoid group of drugs also help. Wear loose fitting clothes. Get your diabetes status checked as high blood sugar can also cause recurrent boils/pimples. Consult a skin specialist. Take care!

I went to my GP who then prescribed me clindamycin on top of the erythromycin and codeine for pain. When I was only taking erythromycin, my stomach was hardly upset, if at all. Now that I'm taking the clindamycin, my stomach is killing me. There's no diarrhea as of yet, but the amount of stomach cramping I have is insane. It's not abdominal pain, but stomach pain, just below my chest.
Once I stopped Oral Fucidin, folliculitis is reappearing, on the buttocks and inner thighs. It hurts and itches. The dermatologist wants to give me Erythromycin for 30 days. The dermtologist is also wondering if there are any physical underlying causes. I am very worried and read that folliculitis and demodex are related to immunity. I would appreciate your sincere opinion.
Hi, Acne develops as a result of blockages in follicles. Hyperkeratinization and formation of a plug of keratin and sebum (a microcomedo) is the earliest change. The microcomedo may enlarge to form an open comedo (blackhead) or closed comedo (whitehead). Whiteheads are the direct result of skin pores becoming clogged with sebum, a naturally occurring oil, and dead skin cells.
I have had a strong course of amoxiciliin and then cefelexin, however two weeks later and the site is still open and the gum very swollen. I cannot take metronidazole or erythromycin due to allergic reaction and am concerned as to what i can do next. Am having it dressed every other day by dentist.

Topical prescription treatments that are effective on acne yet gentle on young skin are Dalacin-T (clindamycin) and Differin. Oral oxytetracycline is generally well tolerated but if it upsets your tummy your doctor may prescribe erythromycin instead. If you are female and have started your periods discuss the oral contraceptive pill with your doctor. Particular brands such as Yasmin and Diane35 help clear acne. If you are looking to purchase a non-prescription acne gel, I recommend Freederm.
Other antimicrobials that are used are clindamycin, erythromycin, tetracycline, and vancomycin.All hospitals follow different treatment regimes. Hope you find this information useful. Do keep us posted on how your son is doing. Take care!
Proper hygiene should be maintained. Antibacterial wash such as hexachlorophene and topical antibiotics such as erythromycin or clindamycin may provide relief. You may also try the following- Apply a warm compress to the affected area several times a day, avoid shaving, use antibacterial soap and over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream. However, if severe (large area or multiple areas), your doctor may prescribe some oral antibiotics like cephalexin or erythromycin. Hope it helps.

Antibiotics such as erythromycin, clindamycin can be applied on the lesions. Keep the skin clean by washing it 2-3 times. You can prevent and treat acne by maintaining healthy habits like eating proper diet, getting a good amount of sleep and drink at least eight glasses of water daily. For acne the severity and extent of your acne has to be considered here. Consult a dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards!
I have taken Erythromycin 2x, Clindamycin 3x and Biaxin. Nothing will cure the infection. I have seen 5 dentists and 2 endodontists and no one knows what to do for me. They essentially tell me I have an infection, presecribe some medication and push me out the door. I am at a loss as to what to do, but I can no longer continue with this pain. It has gotten to the point where somedays I just don't want to be alive anymmore. Please tell me what to do!
I know you recommend doxcycline, but I'm allergic to tetra and minocycline so I assume I'm allergic to that(I get hives). I've been on tablet erythromycin since June, w/ no improvement at all, but the dr tells me to keep taking it. I also have heard about metronidazole. Is better than clindamycin, as that's what I am taking now, but my dr hasn't told me to put it on my temples. I'm very sorry for the length of this inquiry but I am miserable and desperate. Thank you so much for your time.
Azithromycin is, along with erythromycin and clarithromycin, antibiotics that may prolong the QT interval. They are usually used agains two specific infections that can't be treated with normal antibiotics; chlamydia (both the STD and the lung infection, though they have nothing to do with each other) and mycoplasma pneumonia. I believe this type of antibiotics are named macrolid antibiotics (roughly translated from my language).
A course of treatment with topical clindamycin and an oral erythromycin/sulfa combination cleared it up beautifully. This after the general pediatrician had tried antifunglals, steroid creams, and antiobiotic ointments to no avail for months. I hope this information isn't too late to help you.
I have 2 acne medications, Erythromycin Benzoyl Peroxide Topical Gel and Clindamycin Phosphate Gel USP 1%. Is it ok to use the Erythromycin Benzoyl and then the Clindamycin right after, or what? Should I use both of these meds, maybe one after another? Also, when should I use them? At night before I go to bed or in the morning? Also, I have the product Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub. Is it ok to use this product when I wake up or should I just stick to the other meds?

Dear Doctor, I had unprotected Oral Sex(********) back in Nov 2007, after 45 days i went for blood test to check for STD's and all of them came negative.Recently i found out 2 to 3 blisters or sores came one after the other not clustered but scattered between the groin area and penis but not on my penis or scrotum area.
You may try using OTC bactericidal products containing benzoyl peroxide in mild to moderate acne. Antibiotics such as erythromycin, clindamycin can be applied on the lesions. Keep the skin clean by washing it 2-3 times. It would be best to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms to find out the cause of your complaints. Increase the intake of proteins in your diet, take a multi vitamin and zinc supplements. Adequate sleep and hydration are also important.

I went to a dermatologist and he prescribed me doxycycline for a month a long with a mixture made of Clindamycin 2%, HC 1% in 80% H20 and 20% isopropanol to apply to the area. This took away the red dots and a lot of the papule's (not all) but I seemed to get more of those red pimple-like bumps around my mouth while I was on it.
