How Deriva-Cms Gel works

Deriva-Cms 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.

I was suffering from severe acne problem 4 years ago, then I consult to the doctor for the same. Then he done the treatment and recommended Sotret & Deriva CMS Gel for about 4-5 months and that time I got the relief also. Now, again today I am facing the same issue. I am having acne over the face, not that much severe but having 3-4 acnes everytime on my face. What should I do now to get rid of this ?

User Feedback


Q. Can I use Deriva-Cms as a spot treatment (for single pimple)?

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

Q. How long does Deriva-Cms take to work?

It may take up to 2-3 weeks before your symptoms improve. Deriva-Cms 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 Deriva-Cms be more effective if I overuse it?

No, do not overuse Deriva-Cms. 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.
