Description of Clindamycin & Nicotinamide Gel – Acnementin Gel belongs to the lincomycin antibiotic class, which works by preventing or stopping bacterial growth. This combination medication is primarily used to treat acne that is inflamed. It reduces the production of excess natural oil known as sebum. It also reduces acne-related swelling. Acne is a skin condition in which the skin’s oil glands (sebaceous glands) become clogged, resulting in pimples and, in some cases, cysts.
Acnementin Gel is composed of two medications: Clindamycin and Nicotinamide. Clindamycin is a lincomycin antibiotic that works by penetrating the skin and killing the bacteria that cause acne. Nicotinamide, on the other hand, is a type of vitamin B that is responsible for anti-inflammatory effects when applied to the skin. It works together to reduce swelling, redness, and tenderness caused by acne or pimples. Aside from that, it helps to keep pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads at bay on the skin.
Clindamycin & Nicotinamide Gel is a combination medicine that treats acne (also known as pimples) by reducing the production of excess oil in the skin, which causes acne. This also kills acne-causing bacteria and keeps spots and pimples at bay. It usually takes a few weeks to notice a difference, so keep using it even if it doesn’t seem to be working.
Acne can sometimes get worse before it gets better, but with proper care, your skin will clear up. The sooner you begin using it, the less likely you are to develop scars. As your skin clears up, this medication will help to improve your mood and boost your confidence.
The gel may show some side effects but the symptoms will reside once your skin gets used to the medicine. In case they persist for long, contact your doctor and stop using the gel. Some common side effects of the gel include:
Clindamycin & Nicotinamide Gel is only for external use and should not be taken orally, ophthalmic, or intravaginally.

If the gel accidentally gets into your eyes, immediately rinse them thoroughly with water and contact your doctor if the irritation persists. If your skin conditions do not improve, consult your doctor.
