Clindamycin ingredients

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin ingredients


Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Clindamycin which is clindamycin hydrochloride is unlikely to have cross reactions with penicillin or sulfa group of medications. Sometimes the inactive ingredients in the medications can cause an allergic reaction. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn You could also use an ointment containing benzoyl peroxide/ clindamycin. After the acne heals you could try products containing ingredients like tretinoin, hydroxyquinone, arbutin, kojic acid, azelaic acid, alpha hydroxyl acids, niacinamide etc. If these do not seem to be beneficial you may consider seeing a dermatologist for alternative treatment options. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hi there! You could try ointments containing benzoyl peroxide/ clindamycin for the acne. It is also important to keep the skin dry and oil-free at all times. Wash the face atleast 3 times a day with a mild soap, take plenty of water fruits and vegetables and avoid stress for best results. For pigmentation you cold OTC skin lightening ointments containing ingredients such as hydroquinone etc.
Avatar f tn I have gone to a dermatologist once, and he prescribed me some antibiotics and 2 different creams, one facial cream with benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin, and one for my back. I forgot the active ingredients for that. But after spending a few hundred dollars on these medicines and not having really any improvement with my ance, I think it probably isn't the result of bacterial acne. I don't eat the healthiest but not the worst either.
Avatar f tn When my patients have this complaint, I typically will do a wet mount to confirm, and if clue cells are found, I will treat with Flagyl orally, or vaginally. Another option is Clindamycin, orally or vaginally. Another important thing is for the patient to re-establish a healthy culture of "good bacteria" or lactobacillus. This can be done by eating yogurt with live bacterial cultures, or by taking probiotics, for example.
Avatar m tn Hyperpigmentation is a common side effect of hair removing creams and folliculitis of shaving/ waxing. For hyperpigmentation one could use products containing ingredients like tretinoin, hydroxyquinone, arbutin, kojic acid, azelaic acid, alpha hydroxyl acids, niacinamide etc. However, these should be used only after consultation with a dermatologist and with caution in the pubic area, with extra care not to touch anywhere beyond the skin.
Avatar f tn Try a natural cleanser.. I had acne pre pregnancy and used exfoliater and a cleanser to remove all my makeup but when I found out I was pregnant my skin got a bit worse after getting in some what clear.. I stopped using the exfoliater and gently washed my face.. don't over clean your skin just stick to natural ingredients. . I use a brand called salida.. I'm in the UK if you I'm sure there's other products similar..
Avatar n tn I noticed the two main ingredients of Benzaclin are benzoyl peroxide 5% and clindamycin 1%. Benzoyl peroxide is easily available at local drugstores and there is a generic clindamycin 1% topical lotion that my insurance does cover. Would I be wrong to think that if I use the otc benzoyl peroxide 5% in combination with a prescription of clindamycin 1% I will receive the exact same benefits?
Avatar n tn It is more likely that you are allergic to one of the two active ingredients in Duac (clindamycin or benzoyl peroxide). Benzoyl peroxide is a common allergen. Use a bland cleanser such as Physiological cleanser by La Roche-Posay and consider taking an antihistamine tablet to reduce the redness (available without prescription, always read the label). The most common topical treatment for rosacea is Metrogel (metronidozole).
Avatar f tn Methylprednisolone acetate 2,5 mg (0.25 %) Neomycin sulphate (equivalent to 1,75 mg neomycin base) 2,5 mg Aluminium chlorhydroxide complex 100 mg Sulphur 50 mg Preservatives: Methylparaben 0,2% m/v Butylparaben 0,3% m/v Thanks very much!! A.
Avatar f tn There are also many effective prescription topical meds which out perform over the counter remedies. These include Dalacin-T (clindamycin) Duac gel (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) Differin (adapalene) and Retin-a (tretinoin). Eloise.
Avatar f tn For the past 6 + months i have been battlling recurrent yeast and bacterial infections. I have been on multiple doses of Diflucan, Terazol, Monistat, and clindamycin. Nothing seems to help. The doctor just says she doesnt know and prescribes something else. I am getting extremely frustrated and depressed and dont know what else to do. I tried adding a daily dose of probiotic every day (did that for several months) and that only seemed to exacerbate things.
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 m tn After several treatments (Bactrim, Doxcycline, and finally Clindamycin gel), it finally seemed to go away a few weeks ago. When I did a follow-up with my PCP, he said it simply looked like my skin was irritated at this point and that I had nothing to really worry about. In the week following, I noticed that the folds next to my scrotum were getting increasingly red and sweaty. Since I had an appointment with my dermatologist scheduled anyway, I had her look at it.
Avatar f tn Try mupriocin or another topical. Mupriocin and clindamycin are precription topicals though. Ingredients of Neosporin are: neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates and bacitracin zinc ophthalmic ointment. Unless it is maximum strength then it doesn't have bacitracin in it. So if you are allergic to bacitracin that is in the neosporin it will aggravate the infection. It is really too long to wait if you have a infection that bad. It could get into your blood stream.
Avatar m tn Using a cleansing regime which tackles excess oil is useful. Common ingredients in over the counter products include Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic acid. If over the counter products prove to be of limited use see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotic such as Oxytetracycline. I have not yet seen your picture but this medicine is effective for many types of acne.
467493 tn?1229898839 id=132912 Acne medications considered safe for expecting mothers include erythromiycin, clindamycin, azelaic acid, and oral contraceptive pills. Erythromycin and clindamycin can be used in both topical creams and oral prescriptives. The oral forms of these are antibiotics for severe acne. Since bacteria are able to build resistance to antibiotics, however, erythromycin and clindamycin, though safe, may not be very effective.
Avatar f tn Pangea French Chamomile Cream (1x-2x weekly if skin is super oily) AM Treatment.................... Finacea and Clindamycin Gel 1% (derm didn't say which order to use these or which to use every day or which to do less frequently. i have been switching off but i think that i should be doing the clindamycin daily and the finacea every other day?) Sunscreen....................Epicuren Discovery Zinc Sunscreen (phsyical, no additives, no clogging ingredients) PM Treatment....................
Avatar n tn I doubt it is detergent as I don't have the rash any place else. I don't think it is the SLS ingredients in soaps as some soaps I brought in to test have that, but were found to be fine for me. HELP! Any advice truely appreciated. Just not sure what to do next.
Avatar n tn Oxytetracycline 250mg twice a day. If this is ineffective after 3 months another antibiotic may be tried such as Erythromycin or Lymecycline). Dianette/Diane35 oral contraceptive pill (female acne patients only). Accutane/Roaccutane (Oral Isotretinoin, this is only prescribed if other treatments have resulted in failure or relapse). Eloise.
Avatar f tn I have not tried echinacea, but I did notice that it was one the ingredients in the last herb I took. Is tetralysal kinda like accutane? thanks for your comment!
6884018 tn?1385768642 Other than that, perioral dermatitis can be triggered by the make up cover as well. It may be that certain ingredients of cosmetics may act as the trigger. Now regarding the treatment, you need to change two habits of yours. Firstly picking and pressing the acne. It gets immediate results -- but when you squeeze pimples at home, you are inviting infection and scarring which is more pronounced and stubborn in males. Hence you need to avoid it.
Avatar m tn Hell All, Trying to find out if I had a herx or reaction to medicine I am taking for Lyme Disease. Been taking tindazole twice daily for almost three weeks and started clindamycin IV twice daily four days a week more than a week ago. Have been feeling a little bad, but yesterday things went crazy. Had sore back and stiff neck all day (I always have a stiff neck and headaches at night), and just didn't feel right. Last night I took tindazole at 9 p.m. and 30 minutes later took tow enzymes.
Avatar n tn nothing too severe and this Rx med. called [ clindamycin phosphate] its for severe acne my bf used it and it worked till he stoped using it...but its said to clear ur skin after continual use...
Avatar f tn I went to the Dermatologist and she said it could be from sweat/yeast build up and first tried Clindamycin lotion 2x a day for 2 weeks. It seemed to go down a lot but then came back shortly after. I went back to the same doctor and this time she said I should change my laundry wash and wash it with Head + Shoulders shampoo and apply a topical steroid which she gave me the Rx for. Well the steroid made it SPREAD to places on my neck where it was not as bad before.
Avatar n tn found at walgreens and a spray version with the same ingredients yet $10 cheaper called Bactine though doesn't seem to be as effective as the gel. We've been trying hydrogen peroxide baths, aloe vera liquid baths, lavender bath salt baths, and a combo of all 3 - dropping a few drops of Hibiclens in the bath water, etc..
1356964 tn?1302091035 Your cat has Clostridium difficile. It is caused by your dumb vet giving him clindamycin. Clindamycin is a popular antibiotic that WILL cause clindamycin in both human and animal. Read your drug label and stay away from it. Flagyl (Metronidazole) is the first line drug for Clostridium difficile mainly because it's cheap. It costs $5-8 for human dosage, vet usually overcharge, so it's probably 10 times more. Your best bet is Vancomycin.
Avatar f tn I've been on a series of antibiotics (Clindamycin, Bactrim, Rifampin, Doxcycyline, and CIPRO). After my 3 incisions closed and healed and I thought I was all better. I started my menstrual cycle again at the end of February and just a few days later, I had a ultrasound done to see if there was any fluid in my breast (something didnt feel right to me, thus the reason I checked). About 4 days after my ultrasound I woke up with more redness on my breast and I could feel fluid in there.
Avatar m tn Their prescriptions and medications were effective for only a temporary period, but after stopping medications, folliculitis will return and it becomes much worse. I was prescribed clindamycin phosphate 1% topical solution/pills and different types of antibiotics. I also tried to cut my hair short, shower twice a day but nothing worked. Gradually, folliculitis started spreading to other scalp areas.
