Table of contents:

Benzaclin is a topical medication used to treat acne vulgaris. It contains a combination of clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide. Clindamycin is an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Benzoyl peroxide is an antibacterial agent and a mild drying agent, which helps to reduce the number of pimples on the skin.

Uses and Dosage

Benzaclin is available as a topical gel, and the dosage and frequency of use may vary based on the severity of the condition and other factors. It is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional for guidance on how to use Benzaclin properly. Avoid getting the gel in your eyes, mouth, or nose, as it can cause irritation. Also, do not apply the gel to skin that is broken, sunburned, or irritated in any way.

To use Benzaclin Gel, follow these steps:

  1. Wash the affected area with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
  2. Apply a thin layer of the gel evenly over the affected area(s) of the skin.
  3. Rub the gel in gently until it is absorbed.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 in the morning and at night, or as directed by your healthcare provider.

If you experience severe irritation or an allergic reaction, stop using Benzaclin Gel and contact your healthcare provider. It may take several weeks of consistent use before seeing an improvement in acne symptoms. Consult your healthcare provider about the appropriate dosage and frequency of use for your specific condition.
