    I see very little difference in my cystic acne since using this gel. When applied at bedtime, it seems to reduce the swelling of the cyst overnight. But by the next afternoon, the cyst is swollen and painful once again.

    Overall, satisfied with my experience.I was prescribed to use this medication (clindagel)in the mornings and epiduo at night. A perfect combo for my cystic acne! Highly recommend anyone suffering with cystic acne to go ask their dermatologist about these topical medications:) Only bad part: My skin becomes very sensitive from the medication making it a little rosey if too much is applied.

    I have been using this product for a couple of months now and it seems to reduce my acne, but it makes the scars left behind appear worse. When I first started using this I developed severe dandruff, which I have never had before. Measures had to be taken to get rid of it. I still get the occasional acne, but it's not as bad as before. Truth be told I'm not sure how much long I'll use ... Show Full Comment

    this medication should only be used for teenagers. This made my acne worse. This was not good for my skin at all.
