WHich do i apply first, cliclindamycin  or my moisturizer Cetaphil?

Several steps: First clean the area and dry it. Then apply the clindamycin as you want this antibiotic to penetrate into the lesion area.

Since none of these seem to be of any use, there is no reason to ever use any of them. ...Read more
