I get cysts large painfull swollen cysts on the outsides of my ears and ear lobes which leave me looking deformed when my ear attatches to the side of my face from the swelling. With in two to three days of using clindagel the cyst will pop and then its gone in another couple of days. This medicine works so well for my painfull condition and I dont need to take antibiotics everytime anymore.

I had an inflamed blackhead. My dermatologist gave me antibiotics and Clindagel. Applied the cream as directed once/day. After second day, it had burned my skin so badly I had to stop using it. Now I have severe redness, blisters and peeling skin. Now I'm using aloe vera gel from the health food store which I should have used from the begining.

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 this product. For a prescription it seems to do more harm than good.

This medication did not help me at all. In fact, it created a new skin problem. I have a rash in the area I used the gel and it won't go away.

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