Hi can I use clindamycin &nicotinamide with skinoren acni cream?

Yes: All of those treatments work in different ways but I would avoid long term oral antibiotic. If you can. Topical is ok. Nicotinamide reduces inflammation, retinoids shrink oil glands and clindamycin kills bacteria that digest the oil from the glands. It is the breakdown products of the oil that cause all the problems.
A good smile is worth a lot of medicine. ...Read more

Can I use salicylic acid together with a clindamycin gel?

No: I wouldn't put them on the same spot. The clindamycin is for infection. Salicylic acid is for muscle soreness. If you need to use them on the same spot, it would be better to wait and use tham after the infection is gone. Otherwise space them apart as far as is possible. They will both absorb alright, but you don't want one to block the absorption of the other ...Read more

Hi dr. I've got razor bumps since 10 days ago, and they have not vanished yet is clindamycin gel is useful for it? And will razor bumps will go naturaly

Wash your face: SSharma - using a medication to help reduce the bumps is not a bad idea, but my suggestion is that you utilize soap that kills bacteria. My suggestion is sold at pharmacies. The soap is called Hibiclens. Use it twice a day to kill the bacteria on your facial skin and that should reduce the bumps within a week to 10 days. ...Read more
