Specializes in Internal Medicine

Acne antibiotics: Topical Clindamycin is used when acne is not controlled by standard care with benzoyl peroxide/salacylic acid or other otc products used religiously. It should be used in conjunction with other therapies. Unlike systemic antibiotics little is absorbed. The only limit for use is: toxicities (rash, diarrhea, c diff), inefficacy/resistance, resolution of acne.
