Overview

Introduction

Acnicin Gel is a combination of two medicines that effectively treats acne. It minimizes oil production and thus reduces inflammation. It also kills acne-causing microorganisms and prevents infection. This helps to prevent pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads on the skin.

Acnicin Gel is strictly advised for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Apply it only on the affected areas of the skin. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and cover the treated areas with clothing or use a sunscreen before stepping out in the sun. Drink plenty of water and use moisturizer as it may lead to dryness of mouth, lips, and eyes. It is advised, not to have any cosmetic procedures during the treatment.

Use of Acnicin Gel may lead to a few common side effects like itching, redness, and burning sensation at the application site. If these side effects do not improve with time or worsen, inform your doctor.

How to use Acnicin Gel

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the gel. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

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.
