Zindaclin is a gel that is applied to the skin to help treat acne. It contains clindamycin, an antibiotic, which can help to kill harmful bacteria that are irritating the skin.
How do I use Zindaclin gel?
Zindaclin gel should be applied thinly to the whole area of skin affected by acne once a day using fingertips or a cotton pad. Wash your skin with a mild cleanser and pat it dry before applying Zindaclin.
What if I use more Zindaclin than I should?
Using a larger amount of Zindaclin gel than needed to treat acne is unlikely to be a problem, but it’s best to wash any excess gel with plenty of water.
Can I use Zindaclin if I’m pregnant?
Zindaclin is not known to be harmful in pregnancy. However, you should inform a member of the team if you are pregnant, so that we can ensure this is a suitable treatment for you.
There are very few side effects associated with using Zindaclin. Some people experience a stinging sensation when applying, but this subsides with time, or by applying the gel more thinly on the skin.
