Yes. : Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) topically and systemically (through the blood stream) helps acne. Your doctor can fill in the details, but this is a good choice for acne, particularly in combination with benzoyl peroxide topically.

Talk to your doc: You should talk to your doctor first. While the Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) (clindamycin) may be the cause of your diarrhea, stopping the antibiotics may be dangerous. This isn't a decision you should make on your own.
