What is Benzaclin Gel?

Benzaclin is a prescription medication that’s used on the skin to treat acne (inflammatory acne vulgaris). This topical acne medication combines benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin. Benzoyl Peroxide kills the bacteria and helps slough off dead skin cells while Clindamycin stops the growth of bacteria that causes acne, decreasing inflammation. Both components work together to reduce the amount of bacteria on the skin and decrease inflammation. Read More
