In brief: Clindamycin

For best results, apply the clindamycin gel or lotion to clean dry skin three times a day.
If you have very oily skin you might want to use an alcohol pad to clean off the excess oil before applying it. Call your prescribing provider if you find no real improvement after 4 weeks of use.

In brief: As prescribed

The best way is how your doctor prescribed it.
I would follow up with your skin doctor to see if other treatments would be available.

In brief: Dalacin

The recommended dose is 5 g (one full applicator) into the vagina at bedtime for 7 consecutive nights.
Women who are menstruating should wait until menstruation has stopped before using this medication.

In brief: Acne medication

First, use it according to your prescription instructions.
It take several weeks before you may start to see results. Use it thinly and locally on a clean dry face. And always use sunscreen if going to be outside.
