Benzaclin Gel is a prescribed topical medication indicated for treating acne vulgaris. 

Benzaclin Gel comprises two active ingredients: clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide, both of which have antibacterial properties. Clindamycin halts skin bacteria growth, while benzoyl peroxide reduces oil production and prevents bacterial growth, keeping pores clear. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before using Benzaclin Gel and with each prescription refill, thoroughly review its medication guide and patient information leaflet. Seek the guidance of your doctor or pharmacist for any questions or concerns. 

Benzaclin Gel is strictly for external application. Refrain from contact with the eyes, mouth, lips, nose, or nasal creases. In case of contact, rinse with water. Avoid using this gel on dry, irritated, sunburned, windburned, chapped, or broken skin. 

Typically, Benzaclin Gel is applied twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening. To aid with consistency, apply this gel at the same time each day. 

To properly use Benzaclin gel, follow these steps: 

  1. Cleanse the affected area with warm water and gently pat dry with a clean towel. 
  2. Use your fingertips to apply a thin and even layer of gel to the affected area. 
  3. Check for a white film on the skin after application, indicating excessive medication use. 
  4. Wash your hands thoroughly after use. 

Use Benzaclin Gel strictly according to your doctor’s instructions. Do not exceed the prescribed dosage or frequency of use, as doing so will not hasten the recovery process and may lead to adverse reactions. 

Inform your doctor if your condition fails to improve or deteriorates.

Before using Benzaclin Gel, inform your doctor and pharmacist if you have any known hypersensitivities, especially to clindamycin, benzoyl peroxide, lincomycin, other medicines, or any ingredients present in Benzaclin Gel. 

To ensure Banzel is safe for you, disclose to your physician your medical background, specifically regarding any history of intestinal disorders, such as regional enteritis, ulcerative colitis, antibiotic-associated colitis, or C. difficile-associated diarrhea. 

Benzaclin Gel may interact with certain products, including other skin acne medications like dapsone. To prevent such drug interactions, inform your doctor and pharmacist about all the products and medicines you are currently taking, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, and herbal products. 

The use of Benzaclin Gel can heighten the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. Avoid prolonged or needless sun exposure and don protective clothing, sunscreen, and sunglasses when going out. 

Do not use sunscreen containing PABA on the same area of skin treated with Benzaclin Gel to avoid skin discoloration. 

To avoid skin irritation while using Benzaclin Gel, refrain from using harsh skin products such as shampoos, soaps, or skin cleansers, hair coloring or permanent chemicals, hair removers or waxes, or skin products with alcohol, spices, astringents, or lime. Only use other medicated skin products if directed by your doctor. 

Benzoyl peroxide may bleach hair or fabrics. Avoid contact with clothing, hair, colored towels, or bed linens. 

The potential fetal harm from administering Benzaclin Gel to pregnant women is unknown. Notify your physician if you get pregnant or planning to conceive while using Benzaclin. 

Consult your doctor before breastfeeding while using Benzalin Gel, as it is uncertain whether clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide are excreted in human milk after topical application.
