Buy Zindaclin 1% Gel online
Zindaclin 1% Gel is an acne treatment which uses an antibiotic called clindamycin to treat your spots. It helps to keep your pores from blocking, reducing the number of spots you’ll get and reducing redness in the area. If you have acne and have found that regular skincare and over the counter remedies haven’t helped to clear up your skin, you might find that Zindaclin is the right treatment for you.
How Zindaclyn works
Clindamycin is the active ingredient in Zindaclin gel, and it works as an antibiotic. It fights the bacteria that cause acne, reducing their numbers and keeping them from clogging your pores and creating spots. It can be used on breakouts on your face, back, and chest, as well as other areas, helping to reduce redness along with your spots and blackheads.
Before using Zindaclin gel, you should wash your hands and the area where you usually get spots and pat it dry gently. Apply a thin layer of gel to the area where you get your spots, making sure to only use a small amount. Do this once a day and wash your hands again after each application. You should continue to use this gel for as long as your doctor tells you to do so. When you’re applying this acne gel, make sure that you do not:
- Apply the gel to any area of skin that does not usually get spots
- Dab the gel onto individual spots
- Apply a thick layer of gel to any area - it will not clear your spots more quickly
- Apply in or around your eyes, the inside of your nose or in your mouth
Like all medications, Zindaclin gel can have side effects, although not everyone will experience them. These side effects include:
- Sky skin
- Redness of the skin
- Burning skin
- Irritation around your eyes
- Your acne getting worse
- Painful skin
- A scaly rash
- Diarrhoea with blood and mucus, which will need immediate medical attention
If you experience these or any other side effects while using this product, speak to your doctor or pharmacist. For more information about reporting the side effects of medication, please see the MHRA’s Yellow Card Scheme.
Zindaclin gel is not suitable for use in children under the age of 12. Do not use this product if you are allergic to clindamycin, lincomycin (another type of antibiotic), or any of the listed ingredients in this product. If you have any inflammatory bowel disease (such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease) or have diarrhoea after you take antibiotics, you should tell your prescriber about this during your first consultation. This gel is for external use only, avoid contact with eyes or other sensitive areas.
If you’re taking any other medication, including herbal remedies or medications you obtained without a prescription, you should tell your prescriber about this during your consultation. Some medications can interact when used together, making the active ingredients less effective or causing unwanted side effects. Our prescribers will be able to assess the medications you are taking and whether Zindaclin gel will be the best possible treatment for you.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding
You should not use Zindaclin clindamycin gel during your pregnancy unless you are specifically told to do so by your doctor. You should not use this product during pregnancy, as clindamycin can pass into your breastmilk, even if you’re only using it on your skin. Acne is common during pregnancy, as the changes in your hormones can cause breakouts. If this happens to you and is severe enough to need treatment, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist and ask them to recommend a suitable treatment that you can use until the end of your pregnancy.

Advice & Guides
Spot break outs always seem to happen at the worst possible moment, just before a first date, the day you’re getting your photo taken, all of those wonderful occasions when you could really do with not having a huge spot between your eyes.
But do you just have a few spots, or are you suffering with acne?Read More
How long does Zindaclin gel take to work?
Can Zindaclin gel be used for any other medical conditions?
While Zindaclin gel is designed to be used for acne, clindamycin is often used as an ingredient for other conditions.
Clindamycin tablets, creams, and even injections are all available, with each different treatment designed to work best for different conditions.
Some of the most common reasons why this medication is used include:
- Bacterial vaginosis (BV)
- Foot infections caused by diabetes
- Chronic sinusitis
- Infections in the bones, joints, respiratory tract, genitals, etc.
What causes acne?
Acne can be caused by a variety of reasons, but the most common cause is a change in hormone levels.
This is why acne is most common in teenagers, during pregnancy, and at different times during your menstrual cycle.
Hormonal changes can cause the glands next to hair follicles to produce more oil (sebum) than normal, which can change the activity of a normally harmless bacterium to become aggressive and cause inflammation and pus.
Acne can cause different types of spots to develop on the face, back and chest including:
- Blackheads: bumps that are small and black or yellowish in colour
- Whiteheads: similar to blackheads, but may be firmer and won’t be empty when squeezed
- Papules: small red bumps that may feel tender or sore
- Pustules: similar to papules, but with a white tip in the centre that is caused by a build-up of pus
- Nodules: large hard lumps that can be painful
- Cysts: large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring
