What is Zindaclin Gel?

What is Zindaclin Gel used to treat?
Zindaclin Gel is prescribed to treat acne breakouts that are painful and irritating. It contains the active ingredient clindamycin phosphate and works by reducing the amount of bacteria. It also prevents the skin's pores from becoming blocked, which stops new spots from forming.
Zindaclin Gel can also help to reduce the redness created by the spots you may already have.
Acne is a very common infliction which can occur in any stage of a person's life, particularly during adolescence.

How to apply Zindaclin Gel
Use this treatment once a day.
- Wash your skin as usual and ensure your skin is dry before you apply the medicine.
- Apply a small amount of Zindaclin Gel to the whole of the affected area. Gently rub it into the skin until absorbed.
- Replace the cap as soon as you have completed the application.
What if I forget to use it?
If you forget to apply Zindaclin Gel, just apply it as soon as you remember. Do not apply the treatment more than once in a day; this will not treat your acne any more effectively.
To effectively treat acne, it is important that you use Zindaclin Gel consistently. To ensure you don't forget to apply it, try to apply it at the same time every day, to get into a routine. Some people find it beneficial to set an alarm to remind them.
How long will it take to work?
Acne treatments can take several weeks to take effect, so you might not see any changes for a few weeks. Keep up your applications to ensure progress. It can take several months until the full effect is noticeable.
If the gel doesn't work, keep taking it for the prescribed length of time and return to your doctor at the end of this time if you do not notice any improvement.
Use it for as long as your doctor tells you to.
What if I use too much?
Do not worry if you accidentally apply too much Zindaclin; just wash the gel off thoroughly.
Contact your doctor if you become worried.
