What is Clindamycin phosphate topical solution used for?

Clindamycin, also known as Cleocin T Topical Solution, is used mainly for the treatment of acne but may also be prescribed as an alternative to treat acne rosacea.  Clindamycin is an antibiotic, which are drugs effective against bacteria; acne is commonly a result of bacteria. Human skin has pores connected to oil glands located under the skin by follicles, which are small sacs that produce and secrete liquid. Sebum, an oily liquid produced by the glands, carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin through the follicles. Small hairs then grow through the follicle and out of the skin. Acne occurs when these follicles get blocked and oil gets trapped under the skin, creating a buildup. From there, skin cells, sebum, and hair can clump together, forming a plug. This plug then gets infected with bacteria and subsequent swelling. Rosacea has a similar appearance to acne; small, red, pus-filled bumps. These may flare up for weeks to months along with redness and visible blood vessels on the face, usually the cheeks and nose.


What type of antibiotic is Clindamycin?

Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic. There are many different classes of antibiotics; each class contains antibiotics that work similarly. Some examples of different antibiotics include penicillins, tetracyclines, quinolones, macrolides, and sulfonamides.  Additionally, different types of antibiotics work against certain types of bacteria. Lincosamides antibiotics, like Clindamycin, are often used as an alternative antibiotic for those who are allergic to penicillin.


How to apply Clindamycin Phosphate?

Apply only a thin film of the solution to the affected area, twice daily; ensure you wash your hands after application. However, if your doctor has directed you to apply the gel differently, follow only your doctor’s directions. Do not use more or less solution than recommended or for longer or shorter than prescribed. Speak with your doctor before starting treatment if you feel unsure about how to use the medication.
