How to use

Clindamycin lotion is super easy to use! First, clean the affected area of your face with a gentle cleanser and dry it completely. Apply a small amount of Clindamycin lotion on the affected area, rubbing it in gently on the skin before bedtime. It is recommended that you wait 30 minutes after washing and/or shaving your face before applying the lotion. The alcohol in the lotion may irritate freshly washed or shaven skin.

Keep in mind that Clindamycin lotion is for external use only. Do not take it by mouth.
Do not get it in your eyes. If this happens, rinse your eyes with cool water. Do not use it more often than directed.

If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as you can. If it’s almost time for your next dose, go ahead and skip the missed dose and do your next dose, going back to your regular schedule.
