In brief: Acne

There are many topical meds for acne.
Benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) is one of the combination products containing benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin. It works well for mild-moderate acne with inflammatory (red) lesions. There are others as well in addition to oral antibiotics. Talk to your doctor about options.

In brief: It works well

Benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) is a combination of two products, benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin.
The benzoyl peroxide helps decrease bacterial resistance to clindamycin. This medications is quite effective for inflammatory acne (red bumps and pus bumps). It does not help much with clogged pores.
