CLINMISKIN contains Clindamycin. Clindamycin is in a class of medications called lincomycin antibiotics. It works by slowing or stopping the growth of bacteria that cause acne and by decreasing swelling. Acne is the common cause of spots. Small sebaceous glands lie just under your skin surface and make an oil (sebum) that keeps your skin supple and smooth. Tiny pores on your skin allow the sebum to come on to the surface of your skin. In acne, some of these pores become blocked, causing inflamed spots.
Always apply this solution exactly as your doctor has told you. Do not use skin products near the eyes, nose, or mouth. If you do get any in your eyes rinse out with plenty of cool tap water. Before applying this medicine, thoroughly wash the affected areas with warm water and soap, rinse well, and pat dry. When applying the medicine, use enough to cover the affected area lightly. You should apply the medicine to the whole area usually affected by acne, not just to the pimples themselves. This will help keep new pimples from breaking out. You should avoid washing the acne-affected areas too often. This may dry your skin and make your acne worse.
CLINMISKIN should not be used by children under the age of 12 years. Commom side effects of this medicine are redness of the skin, skin burning, itchy skin.
