Hi doctors. What are difference between medicated toner and clindamycin solution? Which is more effective for pimples, redness & skin discoloration?

In brief: Both good

Medicated toners are usually salicylic acid over-the-counter while Clindamycin is a prescribed antibiotic.
They can be used together, or you can use Clindamycin with benzoyl peroxide. If the acne's on your trunk, your physician may add a systemic antibiotic for a short time. Glad your acne is being managed.
