can benzoyl peroxide wash and clindamycin phosphate foam be mixed?

Can be used together: Benzoyl peroxide wash is meant to be washed off. Clindamycin foam is meant to be left on. It is acceptable to use the benzoyl peroxide was in the shower, then apply the Clindamycin foam after the shower to help control acne.
