Cleocin T Topical Solution

Cleocin T topical solution contains clindmycin, an antibiotic used to treat acne and other skin conditions. This is a product that is applied directly to the affected area. Many patients prefer those to an oral medicine.

What is Cleocin T Used for?

The most common use for Cleocin T topical solution is to help with clearing up chronic acne. It may need to be used in conjunction with other forms of medication. Due to the serious side effects, this medicine should only be used at a last resort when other options have failed to get results. It can be used for youth 12 years of age and older as well as adults.

Cleocin T Dosage & Administration

It is important to use Cleocin T topical solution only as prescribed. It should be used daily until your doctor tells you to stop using it. Donít stop using it when the acne is clearing up as that doesnít mean the bacteria has all been destroyed. Make sure you wash and dry the area where you have acne concerns before you apply the medicine. It should only be applied once per day. The use of Cleocin T topical solution can take up to 6 weeks to see improvements. During that period of time, the acne may get worse before it starts to get better. If you donít see improvements after 12 weeks your doctor will likely ask you to stop taking it.
