Clindamycin and sulfur

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin and sulfur


267347 tn?1189968425 I went to the dermatologist today for the sores on my face and was prescribed clindamycin. He said this rash/sores could be zits? He looked in his journal and said acne is a symptom of peg. I never heard of that but what do I know? Anyway, I applied the cream and have to admit, it was soothing at first. I've been on the computer all afternoon and could feel my face getting hotter and hotter and assumed it was my fever.
Avatar m tn Finally went to a dermatologist and he diagnosed as Roscea. Prescribed Sodium Sulfacetamide and Sulfur solution cream and doxycycline once a day. Over the last year, worse it ever got was maybe 5 flesh colored bumps on my forehead. Two days after starting the treatment, my forehead now looks like a war zone. Maybe 50+ red bumps and now they actually look like pimples with some black heads. (that is new). Did a google search and was hoping this was common.
Avatar m tn You can use certain over the counter products such as Benzoyl peroxide and exfoliants such as salicylic acid, citric acid and sulfur containing products. If any product causes excess drying of skin then please avoid it. Apart from this show this to a doctor (probably take a second opinion from another dermatologist). You may need a prescription of antibiotics like erythromycin or clindamycin (both oral and topical), retenoids and other medicines specific for acne vulgaris.
Avatar m tn Current rosacea regimen is Metrogel 1% gel (anti-inflammatory) and (Sodium Sulfacetamide 1% and Sulfur 5% Lotion) applied on alternate evenings, mostly on nose and upper cheek areas. I also use a Clindamycin (antibiotic) preparation most mornings. Then I use Elidel wherever I see flaking (seb derm). This seems to work pretty well BUT it's based on what I need after consulting with several dermatologists. Your condition may be different and require different meds.
948202 tn?1245945416 I have not had any breakous for about 2 months since using clindamycin during the day, and sulfacetamide at night. I just recently added the retin-a becasue i wanted some anti-aging benefit. Also, i would like to add an antioxidant serum to my skin since i live in florida and want to protect my skin from UV etc.Do you recommend anything that wont break me out. When would i apply it before or after clindamycin? I use blue lizard face suncream as my spf.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Clindamycin - Apparently now within a couple days she is noticing considerable improvements and now the spots have seemed to "stop" popping up no matter how mild they were when they did.... the fact is they've stopped showing up in new places. I've never seen someone so sensitive to EVERYTHING in the realm of physical and mental like my mom is, but one thing is for sure she definitely knows her body cause that sulfa drug did cause an allergic reaction.
20814570 tn?1520101812 Standard topical treatments include metronidazole, azelaic acid, and sodium sulfacetamide-sulfur. Second line therapies include benzoyl peroxide, clindamycin, calcineurin inhibitors, and permethrin.
Avatar m tn Anyway, I am washing morning and night with a sulfur wash and putting adapalene on at night. Well now it's out of control with more and more popping up. She said it will get worse before it gets better. This is a tough pill to swallow...I miss the way my face used to look before I went to see her. Should I stay the course?
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar m tn There are a number of topical (external) medicine a doctor can prescribe, such as clindamycin, erythromycin, and sulfur. These can be supplemented with over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide washes and gels. Whatever you do, don't squeeze pimples that come, because that makes them last longer. A single visit with a skin doctor is probably a good idea. By the way, there's no good way to explain why this has started happening just now above your lip, but that's as common a place as any for acne.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to dandruff or contact dermatitis. Eat a healthy diet. You can also take vit B6 and vit A and E which are good for hair and skin. Try medicated shampoos for dandruff. There are a number of over-the-counter shampoos available that can help. The most effective ingredients -- antimicrobials -- to look for are zinc pyridinethione, selenium sulfide, sulfur and ketoconazole (also available by prescription).
Avatar n tn After seeing a dermatologist he prescribed me Doxycycline for 1 month and an ointment made of Clindamycin 2%, HC 1% in 80% h20 and 20% isopropanol. This ointment took away the red spots before I even started the anti biotics but once I ran out, the spots came back again... After this, I started Doxycycline and the dry spots disappeared but it made my face break out and a few days after finishing this treatment, the small red dots below my mouth are returning and it's always in the same area!
2025530 tn?1328892517 I went to my doctors and he prescribed me Clindamycin but cause I am allergic topenicillin and sulfur. It says to take 1 pill every 6 hours. 3rd pill into it I woke up with my left cheek swollen. I called my doctors office and left a message and am waiting to hear back from him but I am tremendously concerned. Does this mean it is getting worse? I don't want any adverse affects happening to my baby if this is not normal.
Avatar n tn One said it was prbably soap buildup and I should try and switch soaps, I have and it has not helped. Second trip to different doctor said he didn't know, and recommended a dermatologist to see if its skin condition. I cannot afford to see the dermatologist for several months and am hoping to remedy this situation before the end of summer.
Avatar n tn I can use benzoyl peroxide or sulfur creams, and completely dry all of my skin out, but it doesn't affect the pimples much Once it starts, if I don't manage to fix it with acne cream (which I have very mixed results with, even in the beginning), it will spread and not go away. I had this rash for several months back at my old apartment, and nothing would even make it clear up a little bit.
Avatar f tn my friend works for tropic skincare and i purchased a set of 4 and i use it everyday. calmed mine ALOT and makes my skin feel alot clearer and fresh! dont think anything gets rid of em. they come and go when they please. good luck hun. i know its horrid. i struggle to remember when i had spot free skin. feel like ive been spotty forever with this pregnancy haa.
Avatar m tn I have gone though several runs of different antibiotics, penicillin and sulfur based. Amoxicillin, Bactrim, Clindamycin, Tetracycline, various others. I would pay my entire years salary for this to go away. Please, I will take any help or advice I can get.
Avatar f tn I used to take Isotretinoin 20mg and Azithromycin(500mg) and a Benzoyl Peroxide based soap and Clindamycin ointment. Recently in my anxiety to get rid of my acne scars, I used Mederma, that cleared my skin but again, I started getting severe acne. So, I took Isotretinoin 20mg and Azithromycin. But it didn't work.Also, I discontinued the Isotretinoin course and took this ointment, Persol Forte ( Benzoyl Peroxide with ppt Sulfur). It made my skin red and pimples worse.
493068 tn?1224768915 Alternate Metrogel 1% gel on nose and affected areas with either OTC Rezamid (stronger) or Sodium Sulfaxetamide 10% and Sulfur 5% lotion. If any scaling, I then add Elidel Cream. Sometimes I mix all three together and apply depending on whether there's more redness, more postules or more scaling. The Metrogel seems to work best for redness, the Razmid or Sodium for pustules (pimples) and the Elidel for scaling.
Avatar m tn I am on week 17, feel good in general, UND since between week 6-8, but in general my face are very red (much more then before tx), in particular the cheeks but also the nose and the forehead, it looks like a kind of rash, Dermatologist thinks this is Demodex. Anyone heard about that and can provide some advice ? Hope SVR will result out of this difficult journey.
Avatar n tn I saw a second dermatologist 3 months ago *because about 3 weeks before I was going to get married I got another lesions on my cheek that just wouldn't heal), this new dermatologist said he thinks it is simply adult acne, and prescribed Sulfacetamide Sodium-Sulfur Wash and clindamycin phosphate gel. That treatment of washing and using that gel did no better than using the bactorban in clearing the lesion up-still had it 3 weeks later for my wedding day.
Avatar f tn its get me annoying and i feel shy people around me,,i try alot of anti acne cream but it doesnt work it keeps coming back and more big and pain and left scars. I feel so worries about this acne... What should i need to do for it? and what kind of anti scars i will use?? Thank you so much...
529981 tn?1212853666 Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair. I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
Avatar f tn non prescription (tar-based, salicylic acid, sulfur, sodium sulfacetamide, zinc, ketoconazole, salicyclic acid AND sulfur combined, hypoallergenic, selenium sulfide). I currently go to a dermatologist every 3 months for follow-ups (mostly for acne, but my scalp as well), but have received at least 3 other opinions. First doctor switched me to minocycline & Re-10 Wash (containing sodium sulfacetamide) which did no good.
Avatar n tn He diagnosed it as BV and we've tried several pills (the sulfur disgusting!) and even told me to use a blow dryer to stop some of the moisture with a little Monistat. My problem goes and comes, it could be months, then, BAMM, there it is. I have never been so overwhelmed by anything in my life. Working with the public and working so close with co-workers and subordinates doesn't help anything either. I need help too, I was even wondering if I needed something removed. Hmmm.
72351 tn?1281996142 1st- Amoxicillin, then Clavamox, Clindamycin, Albon and some other sulfur med, Flagyl (some have experienced diarrhea but probably due to the antibiotics), Prednisone, Gentimycin, Triple antibiotic ointment and Terramycin (for eyes), Penicillin injectable, Tylan50 injectable, Chlortrimeton, Benadryl, Clairton, Zyertec and also rounds of Zithromycin! I know there are more meds but I just cannot remember right this sec. All are on a L-Lysine regiment.
626901 tn?1261876405 I'm washing twice a day, and applying clindamycin gel once a day. I'm supposed to do this for 3 months and then see the dermatologist again. My psychologist suggested a surgeon closer to me that might be able to do the surgery when the time comes. I've had the surgery on my other armpit a couple years ago, and it was successful, which is why I want to do it again. I'm already tired of stinking...
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar m tn What worked for me was a combination of topicals including Clindamycin, Metrogel and OTC Rezamid, a sulfur preparation. Topical steroids are absolutely contraindicated with rosacea, with the exception of maybe a couple of weeks to initially knock down the irritation, and even then, never a potent steroid. Continuous use of facial steroids, especially among rosacea patients, can make things worse and cause a condition called steroid rosacea. This holds true even for OTC Hydrocortisone.
