How Acnicin Gel works

Acnicin Gel is a combination of two medicines: Adapalene and Clindamycin, which treats pimples (acne). Adapalene is a form of vitamin A which prevents accumulation of the sebum (skin’s natural oil), unblocks the pores and allows natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. Clindamycin is an antibiotic which works by penetrating into the skin and killing acne-causing bacteria.

FAQs

Q. Can I use Acnicin as a spot treatment (for single pimple)?

It is not a spot treatment and should not be used to treat a single pimple. Acnicin should be applied to the entire face. Using it everyday can treat your acne.

Q. How long does Acnicin take to work?

It may take up to 2-3 weeks before your symptoms improve. Acnicin may take some time to deliver significant results. Use the medicine as directed and let your doctor know if your symptoms do not improve or get worse.

Q. Will Acnicin be more effective if I overuse it?

No, do not overuse Acnicin. It can cause over-absorption of the medicine into the body and cause severe diarrhea. If you are experiencing increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.
