Zindaclin Gel 30G
Zindaclin gel contains the active ingredient clindamycin phosphate, which is an antibiotic medicine.
Clindamycin is used to treat infections with bacteria. It works by preventing bacteria from producing proteins that are essential to them. Without these proteins, the bacteria cannot grow, replicate and increase in numbers. The remaining bacteria eventually die or are destroyed by the immune system. This treats the infection.
Clindamycin is active against a wide variety of bacteria, including the bacteria associated with acne, Propionebacterium acnes. This is a common type of bacteria that feeds on sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin. It produces waste products and fatty acids that irritate the sebaceous glands, making them inflamed and causing spots. By controlling bacterial numbers, the inflammation of the sebaceous glands is brought under control, and the skin is allowed to heal.
It will usually take a few weeks of treatment before your skin improves.
How do I use Zindaclin?
Wash the skin with a mild cleanser and pat it dry before applying for the medicine.
Zindaclin gel should be applied thinly to the affected areas of skin (not just the individual spots) once a day.
Wash your hands after applying for the medicine.
Important information about Zindaclin
Zindaclin gel is for external use on the skin only and must not be taken by mouth.
Avoid getting the gel in contact with the eyes, mouth, lips and mucous membranes such as the lining of the nose. Rinse the medicine off with warm water if you accidentally get it in these areas.
When clindamycin is taken by mouth, it can sometimes cause inflammation of the bowel (colitis). Although this is very unlikely to occur when you use the antibiotic on the skin, if you get diarrhoea either during or after using this medicine, particularly if it becomes severe or persistent, or contains blood or mucus, you should stop using this medicine and consult your doctor immediately.
