Peroclin gel 5% is a fixed combination product containing benzoyl peroxide and Clindamycin, widely used in treating acne vulgaris. Together, they treat acne by penetrating the skin and killing acne-causing bacteria. Clindamycin improves the appearance of acne by reducing the levels of Propionibacterium acnes and decreasing inflammation. Benzoyl peroxide stops the growth of bacteria and reduces oil production in the skin, thus unclogging your skin pores.
Products containing Clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide are bactericidal and reduce the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. However, a potential limitation of this fixed-dose combination product is dryness and irritation that may impact patient compliance and limit product use.
Before using Peroclin gel, let your dermatologist know if you are allergic to benzoyl peroxide or Clindamycin or if you have any other allergies. This topical formulation may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your dermatologist for more information. Before using this medicine, let your dermatologist know your medical history, especially intestinal disorders such as ulcerative colitis, regional enteritis, antibiotic-associated colitis, ulcerative colitis, and clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea.
The medicine may make you more sensitive to the sun. Limit your time of sun exposure. Avoid sunlamps and tanning booths. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing whenever you step outside. Also, let your dermatologist know immediately if you get sunburned or have redness. Avoid contact with hair and clothes, as they may bleach them.
Some products may interact with Peroclin gel, including other medications used on the skin.
Benzoyl peroxide and Clindamycin may cause side effects. Tell your dermatologist if these symptoms are severe or do not resolve within a few days.
