Does salicylic acid and clindamycin help acne/scars? How long does it usually takes?

ACNE. To the extent that infection and inflammation prevails, then clindamycin may help acne. It is not a usual antibiotic for acne, though. Tetracycline derivatives are better, and less toxic. Salicylic acid may mute inflammation a bit, but inflammation associates with oil, bacteria, and buildup. Cleansing and astringent use may be better.
