Clindamycin (Cleocin, Cleocin T, Evoclin) is a moderately priced antibiotic used to treat certain kinds of bacterial infections. It is also used on the skin to stop the growth of certain bacteria that cause acne. It is more popular than comparable drugs. It is available in multiple generic and brand versions. Generic clindamycin is covered by most Medicare and insurance plans, but some pharmacy coupons or cash prices may be lower. The lowest GoodRx price for the most common version of generic Cleocin T is around $32.49, 69% off the average retail price of $107.68

Clindamycin belongs to the family of medicines called antibiotics. Topical clindamycin is used to help control acne. It may be used alone or with one or more other medicines that are used on the skin or taken by mouth for acne. Topical clindamycin may also be used for other problems as determined by your doctor.

Clindamycin is available only with your doctor’s prescription.

Proper Use

Before applying for this medicine, thoroughly wash the affected areas with warm water and soap, rinse well, and pat dry.

When applying for medicine, use enough to cover the affected area lightly. You should apply the medicine to the whole area usually affected by acne, not just to the pimples themselves. This will help keep new pimples from breaking out.

You should avoid washing the acne-affected areas too often. This may dry your skin and make your acne worse. Washing with a mild, bland soap 2 or 3 times a day should be enough unless you have oily skin. If you have any questions about this, check with your doctor.

Topical clindamycin will not cure your acne. However, to help keep your acne under control, keep using this medicine for the full time of treatment, even if your symptoms begin to clear up after a few days. You may have to continue using this medicine every day for months or even longer in some cases. If you stop using this medicine too soon, your symptoms may return. It is important that you do not miss any doses.

For patients using the topical foam form of clindamycin:

  • After washing or shaving, it is best to wait 30 minutes before applying for this medicine. The alcohol in it may irritate freshly washed or shaved skin.
  • This medicine contains alcohol and is flammable. Do not use near heat, near open flame, or while smoking.
  • To apply for this medicine:
    • Do not dispense clindamycin topical foam directly onto your hands because the foam will begin to melt on contact with warm skin.
    • Remove the clear cap. Align the black mark with the nozzle of the actuator.
    • Hold the can upright and press firmly to dispense. Dispense amount that will cover the affected area(s) directly into the cap or onto a cool surface.
    • The can may be placed under cold running water if the can seems warm or the foam seems runny.
    • A small amount of topical foam should be picked up with your fingertips and massaged gently into the affected areas until the foam disappears.
    • Unused medicine that was removed from the can should be throw away.
    • Since this medicine contains alcohol, it will sting or burn. In addition, it has an unpleasant taste if it gets on the mouth or lips. Therefore, do not get this medicine in the eyes, nose, or mouth, or on other mucous membranes. Spread the medicine away from these areas when applying. If this medicine does get in the eyes, wash them out immediately, but carefully, with large amounts of cool tap water. If your eyes still burn or are painful, check with your doctor.
  • It is important that you do not use this medicine more often than your doctor ordered. It may cause your skin to become too dry or irritated.

  • This medicine contains alcohol and is flammable. Do not use near heat, near open flame, or while smoking.
  • To apply for this medicine:
    • This medicine comes in a bottle with an applicator tip, which may be used to apply for the medicine directly to the skin. Use the applicator with a dabbing motion instead of a rolling motion (not like a roll-on deodorant, for example). Tilt the bottle and press the tip firmly against your skin. If needed, you can make the medicine flow faster from the applicator tip by slightly increasing the pressure against the skin. If the medicine flows too fast, use less pressure. If the applicator tip becomes dry, turn the bottle upside down and press the tip several times to moisten it.
