Avatar f tn My OB/GYN told me that I have to take Clindamycin Phosphate Ovules for 3 days (before bedtime) but I'm trying to get pregnant and I'm ovulating the same time that I have to take the ovules. I don't want to miss the ovulation date. Is it safe to take the ovule (pessary) while I'm trying to conceive or do I have to wait after that day? And if I try after the ovulation day and it happens to be pregnant, is my baby going to be at risk? Thank you very much in advance.
Avatar m tn I am female, 43, currently using Clindamycin phosphate 1% lotion (Dalagis T) once a day to control acne. I have been using it for almost 3 months and it is working. Unfortunately, after many years of successfully using Benzoyl peroxide 2.5% I have developed sensitivity/allergy to it and can not use it any more. I had a severe reaction several months ago and tried to reintroduce the BP 2.5%, but it did not go well.

Avatar m tn I've just started using Clindamycin phosphate gel usp 1% and all of a sudden i satred breaking out worst i've only been using it for 2 weeks now. My question is : Is it normal to break out while using Clindamycin phosphate gel usp 1% before it starts working?
Avatar m tn Hello, Clindamycin is the preferred topical antibiotic for acne. Just keep you face clean by washing with a mild soap atleast twice a day. Pat it dry and do not rub it. Avoid picking or pressing the acne. Apart from topical Clindamycin you can also use Benzoyl peroxide 5% lotion or gel once at bedtime. An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of your face. If your skin becomes red or peels, you are using too much of the medicine or applying it too often.
948202 tn?1245945416 It has hyaluronic acid in the form of a serum. Also, i use clindamycin phosphate lotion to prevent breakouts during the day. If i add this underneath the clindamycin, will it stop the clindamycin from working? Will the serum cause breakouts? It says it is for all skin types. Should i maybe use the hydrating complex after i use the clindamycin? I am 24 yr old female still experiencing some breakouts.

Avatar f tn It helps to decrease the number of acne lesions. Clindamycin is an antibiotic which works by stopping the growth of bacteria.

If you are using the lotion, shake the bottle well before using. Apply a thin layer of medication usually twice a day.

Avatar n tn Clindamyacin Foam Duac Topical Gel (clindamycin, 1%, benzoyl peroxide, 5%) Finacea (azelaic acid) gel, 15% Brevoxyl - 4 Creamy wash (benzoyl peroxide 4%) Clindamycin Phosphate Gel, 1% clindamycin I've had 2 different dermatologists suggest acne or folliculitis yet nothing seemed to work. It still comes and goes along the same time frame whether I do nothing or try treating it with the drugs listed above. This leads me to think I was incorrectly diagnosed.
Avatar f tn It has not been anything near a cure but has at least helped to make the area look a bit more clean (after 2 months of application). Clindamycin Phosphate Topical Suspension (USP 1%), and a compound of Hydroquin/ 4/0.025/2.5% cream. Hope this may help ANYONE, hopefully more.
Avatar n tn I have been taking fiber pills since that day. Now, I have folliculitis and my dermatologist has given me clindamycin phosphate 1% (antibiotic). I have been using this antibiotic for over 2 months now. Before this, my physician kept me on strong antibiotics for 3 months since she thought the swollen lymph nodes was causing folliculitis. Every time, after finishing my pills, a few weeks later I would end up with both swollen lymph nodes and folliculitis.

Avatar f tn Hello, Scabs only appear whenever there is an injury to the skin like in case of insect bite. If the scabs are itchy then the possibility of scabies has to be explored. It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. Hope it helps.
