Clindagel is a topical gel medication used to treat acne by decreasing the number of acne lesions. It contains clindamycin, an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria.

The gel should be applied only on the skin, following the directions on the product package or as directed by a healthcare provider.

The medication can be applied as a thin layer to the affected area twice a day if using the lotion, or once a day if using the foam or gel. Multiple pads or swabs may be necessary depending on the size of the area being treated.


  • Use only on skin: Clindagel is for external use only, not for eyes, nose, mouth, or broken skin.
  • Cleanse first: Wash and dry the affected area before applying Clindagel.
  • Follow directions: Apply as directed by your healthcare provider or the product label (usually 1-2 times daily).
  • Shake the lotion: If using the lotion, shake the bottle well before use.
  • Use applicators as directed: Apply a thin layer with pads, swabs, or foam following specific instructions (e.g., don't spray foam directly on your hands).
  • Wash hands after use: Maintain hygiene by washing your hands after applying Clindagel.
  • Be patient: Improvement can take 2-6 weeks, with full benefits seen up to 12 weeks.
  • Inform your healthcare provider: Tell your healthcare provider if your condition doesn't improve or worsens.


  • Avoid contact with these areas. Rinse thoroughly with cool water if accidental contact occurs.
  • Don't skip cleaning: Always cleanse the area before application.
  • Don't ignore instructions: Follow your healthcare provider's or label's directions for dosage and frequency.
  • Don't manhandle the lotion: Don't forget to shake the lotion before use.
  • Don't misuse applicators: Use pads, swabs, and foam as instructed (don't touch foam with your hands).
  • Don't forget handwashing: Wash your hands after applying Clindagel to prevent the spreading of bacteria.
  • Don't expect instant results: Be patient, as it takes time to see full benefits.
  • Don't stay silent about worsening conditions: If your condition doesn't improve, talk to your healthcare provider.
