The : The combination of Clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide is commonly used in several acne prescriptions. It is a good combination to reduce the bacteria counts and prevent possible bacteria resistance. Studies show that adding Clindamycin to benzoyl peroxide helps acne improve better than benzoyl peroxide alone. However, if you are noticing deeper bumps on your skin, you make also need to consider an oral antibiotic.
