Clinac Gel is an antibiotic used to treat acne (pimples) and some bacterial skin infections. It helps to reduce the number of pimples. This medicine stops the bacteria from growing, which helps to resolve your symptoms.
Clinac Gel is meant for external use only. It should be applied only to the affected area of the skin as per the dosage and schedule prescribed by your doctor. In order to get the most benefit, apply it regularly and preferably at a fixed time each day. Do not use larger amounts or apply it more often or for a longer duration than directed. This will only increase the risk of side effects. You may have to use it for a long time before your acne starts to improve. Be patient and keep using it every day.
This medicine is generally safe to use with minimal side effects such as peeling of the skin, redness, dry skin, irritation, itching, stinging, and burning sensation. Consult your doctor if these persist or if your condition does not improve.
Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the medicine in these areas. Before using it, inform your doctor if you have any previous history of allergy to it or any other medicine. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using it.
