Clindamycin and sun

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin and sun


Avatar n tn I was healthy before I took the Clindamycin and now I wake up nauseous and yesterday had a huge welt on my right arm and itchy bump on the front of my right ankle as well as off and on rashes that come and go. I would like to know when the Clindamycin and maybe also the steroid cream effects will go away? I have to fight the swollen feet and ankles still and notice they get worse now when sitting for long periods of time. This was not an issue before.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed clindamycin 1% lotion. I have been using it for 5 to 6 days now. My skin gets really dry. When exposed to sun or heat.. Becomes red.i apply it two times a day. One at afternoon nd another late night and leave it overnight. My face is really dry.. Painful and at the angle of mouth i hav some redness. Is this only a sideeffect?? Will i get cured?? What should i do?
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 n tn Bevoxyl 4 Benzoil perxide 4%, wash back chest, thighs and face in shower. Doxycilin 100mg, late in evening cause im really fair and sentivity to sun. At night before bed I wash face with a soapless gentle cleaner, or brevoxyl 4 and use clindamycin lotion. The clindamycin lotion makes my face more oily it seems, and is pretty thin, like milk.
Avatar n tn Posted by Nenad on August 06, 1999 at 10:13:11 I have been using Clindamycin 1% solutio (local application, on face) for a month and the results are very good, but I don't know how long should I use it, or how dangerous are the side-effects. So, I would be very grateful for some information on that topic. Thank You.

Avatar n tn I'm a 20 year old in college and I have been using clindamycin lotion 1% and tretinoin gel 0.025% for 2 years now. I started around May 2012, applying the clindamycin morning and night, and the tretinoin every other night and slowly working up to using it every night. Of course my skin was sensitive at first, but over time my skin leveled out. Eventually I noticed that I couldn't apply the clindamycin lotion in the morning because my skin was too sensitive in the sun.
1364054 tn?1346008767 I´m also afraid to use Sona gel because pharmacist told me that there are side effect such as black spots and scars if I don´t protect myself enough from sun. Can you tell me from your experience do I have a reason to be afraid if I´m in the sun a lot? How do I apply Sona gel? The dermatologist said to apply it to my hole face and back, but in notes for the medication says on the damaged spot? For now I´m taking Doksiciklin caps a 100mg which my GP administered instead Hyramicin.
Avatar m tn Scrape and check for fungus? Does the sun aggravate, help, or is neutral for your condition? (Rosacea often flares from the sun.) As to treatment, as stated, Elidel is often prescribed for all three conditions. Be VERY careful if your doctor prescribed anything with cortisone in it for your face except for maybe a very short period like two weeks, and even then, only very occasionally.
Avatar m tn For years now i have had these lesions grow on my arms, pretty much on my shoulder and biceps, just reaching my forearms. I was very badly burned by the sun 10 years ago and after that these things appeared. Could someone tell me; 1) What they are, what is this condition called, what could possibly cause this. 2) How can this go away. I have had dermatologists in Greece tell me "it's nothing" which is the most infuriating thing i have ever heard. 10 years.
Avatar n tn I've got medication prescribed to me by a previous dermatologist visit. Do you think Clindamycin Phosphate 1% or/and Retin-A-Micro would help with this problem? Oh and refering to your previous answer, when you say 'this is temporary', does that mean once I've gone to an esthetician, this will no longer be a problem or will it still flare up now and then? Thanks in advance doctor. I really appreciate the advice you give.
Avatar n tn I hardly ever get acne only the occasional pimple. My skin is fair, I have very few freckles, beauty spots and respond fairly well to sun exposure. Over the past year I noticed the pores on my nose getting larger and clogging up, some are blackheads and other more visible blocked pores have whitish\yellow material, which understand is dead skin, oil(sebum), all of the previous is considered natural.
Avatar n tn Initial lesions and relapses can be triggered by psychological stress, sun exposure, spicy and/or hot foods and drinks, alcohol consumption, cosmetics, topical irritants, etc. Rosacea is preferably treated locally with azalaic acid, metronidazole, sodium sulfacetamide or sulfur. Laser and IPL treatments are effective too but do not prevent relapses. If necessary, short-term oral therapy with tetracyclines could be prescribed.
Avatar f tn The doctor prescribed clindamycin cream. I googled it and the side effect could be POD?! I'm a little hesitant to use it. Has anyone used this as treatment and had positive results. Please advise.
Avatar n tn I've had pimples on my back since I was 10 years old, (It's somewhat of a curse.) and I have medication for my face that I try to use on it but I can never reach it all, and it's to expensive to put it on the whole surface of my back. So anyway, My dad who's a Big "beach guy" says to "get some sun" and that will clear it up. Is this true? Does tanning, or exposure to the sun help to clear away pimples? If so, would tanning salons work? Thank you.
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 n tn Yesterday morning I finished a 10-day dose of clindamycin for a tooth infection and that seems to have done the trick. I had used Zithromax for 5 days a month ago for a sore throat but that didn't affect the dizziness. The allergist's interpretation for this is that either Zithromax was not the right type of antibiotic or the 5-day treatment was not enough. Depending on the result of the CT scan, I might have to continue taking antibiotics.
Avatar m tn Hello. I am currently using clindamycin phosphate 1% and tretinoin cream 0.025%. Will it be ok if I use an over the counter serum to help with discoloration?
363110 tn?1340924019 I am 26 year hold and since 8 to 10 month i have hair fall problem and i consulted doctor and he gave some tablets and Pilomin 2 solution and he asked me to apply while goin to bed with 1drop of coconut oil. and he asked me to use Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo to wash my hair. I was applying that and i got itching sensation on my head so i stop using that and i satrted using Dove shampoo.still i am facing hair fall isuue. and consulted Angels Advanced clinic ltd.
Avatar m tn topical clindamycin, topical erythromycin and topical retinoids like adapalene. Discuss these options with your doctor. If your skin reacts to all topical acne gels, he may prescribe a course of oral antibiotics instead.
Avatar n tn plastic surgery in July (breast reduction and tummy tuck; high blood pressure and I am hypoglecemic. My PCP states he heard something in my neck and has ordered a Caritoid Ultrasound but I am concern that this is not my problem and it is something we are missing. I am having a low grade headache;some low grade burred vision; dizziness when turning over in the bed and some facial pain behind my eyes. Please tell me if we should be looking at other things.
Avatar f tn Regretfully I stopped using it, and then an abcess formed under it, I continued with warm compresses to see if that would help and then he scratched it and lanced it himself- a foul stench and pus like fluid came out. now it is Easter weekend and can not get to a vet. I wonder what I can do to help him until I can get him to a vet. I put on the collar, he just wants out so bad and I wont let him. I have some clindamycin but not sure if that is an appropriate medication for a cat.
Avatar n tn My previous dermatologist though it might be folliculitis and prescribed clindamycin phosphate topical 1%. I did work in the beginning but now the bumps are still popping up and leaving dark marks where the bumps once where. It is very embarrassing and I have switched soaps several times and use only sensitivity skin soaps for body and clothes. Please help I have tried everything even alcohol 70% and nothing is helping.
Avatar n tn I had a URI and took antibiotics again and then was out in the sun and that seemed to trigger it. I read that you can use Selsun Blue (due to the sulphur) (put on your dry scalp and hair and affected areas for 1 hour and then wash off. to kill some of them off and I used it tonight and boy what a difference. When I rubbed the skin on my neck globs of gunk was stuck to my neck which when I rubbed came out with the hairs. My neck and back are very smooth now and feel much better.
Avatar n tn I initially thought the bumps were from topical acne medications I was on (a mix of benzoyl peroxide, differin, and clindamycin) but even after I stopped using it, they continued to persist and multiply. It seems that they multiply more the more sun exposure I get; but that very well could be in my head.
Avatar n tn Hi, I dont have the small bumps all over just one or two but they really bother me, i asked my derm to give me antibiotics but they dont work and make me highly sensitive to the sun even with sunscreen it is docycline, i also asked for retnin a , doesnt work anymore for me and i started using acne free the product with benzyl peroxide i am pretty sensitive and am worried that it could make them worse over time is it possible to become immune to it?
Avatar n tn Apart from hereditary factors (causing hyperactive sebaceous glands), certain diets (high in refined sugars and processed foods) and hormonal changes are associated with predisposition of acne. OTC bactericidal products containing benzoyl peroxide may be used in mild to moderate acne. Antibiotics such as erythromycin, clindamycin can be applied on the lesions. Drink plenty of water every day. Keep the skin clean by washing it 2-3 times a day and avoid using oil-based creams/lotions.
Avatar n tn Was the clindamycin given orally, as a pill? If so, then the swelling and itch might be an allergy to clindamycin, but the fact that it's persisted for over 10 days argues otherwise. It may therefore be that the symptoms are not truly allergic in nature, and that the clindamycin is coincidental and unrelated. This may seem odd, but really isn't, as nonspecific itches happen all the time. They hang around a while and go away on their own, though treatment can make the interlude more livable.
Avatar n tn Bacteria on the skin feed off this excess oil, called sebum, blocking the pores and leading to inflammed spots. If oxytetracycline and doxycycline didn't work other antibiotics may help; lymecycline, erythromycin or minocycline. Alternatively, topical antibiotics (clindamycin, erythromycin) or topical retinoids (tretinoin, adapalene) may work. Female acne patients can take an anti-androgen medicine called Spironolactone and/or an anti-androgen contraceptive pill such as Diane35 or Yasmin/Yaz.
Avatar f tn i have acne problems about 1 month old. I consult a doctor and using cleargel and dermadew soap. But it didn’t any improvements. Please give me some advice, how to clean my skin and how I get rid of my acne problems. My skin is oily. Am studying in 8th standard.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could either be an erruption of acne due to the use of moisturizer or it could be an allergic reaction due to the cream and sunlight, combined. Acne develops as a result of blockages in follicles. Whiteheads are the direct result of skin pores becoming clogged with sebum, a naturally occurring oil, and dead skin cells. In these conditions the naturally occurring largely commensual bacteria Propionibacterium acnes can cause inflammation, leading to inflammatory lesions of acne.
