Overview

Introduction

Clinzer Gel is a combination of two medicines that effectively treats acne. It minimizes inflammation such as redness, itching, and swelling. It also kills acne-causing microorganisms and prevents infection. This helps prevent pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads on the skin.


Clinzer 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 Clinzer 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 Clinzer Gel works

Clinzer Gel is a combination of two medicines: Clindamycin and Nicotinamide, which treats pimples (acne). Clindamycin is an antibiotic which works by penetrating into the skin and killing acne-causing bacteria. Nicotinamide is a form of vitamin B. It exerts anti-inflammatory effects when applied to the skin and reduces swelling, redness and tenderness associated with acne.
