Side Effects Of Clindamycin Acne Ointment?
Hello, may I ask. I have been using orange Mediclin ointment for 2 days on my face, especially the zits. Now my face is often itchy but not all over my face, and my skin is slightly peeling, and there are white-colored wines. Is there a connection with allergies? Or other?

Medicline orange is an acne ointment containing 1.2% Clindamicyn phosphate antibiotics. This ointment is useful for treating bacterial infections in acne.
Although it is quite effective in dealing with infections in acne, these drugs have side effects, including:
Dry and burnt skin
To peel off
Itching on the area that gets the ointment
Based on the information you have provided, the complaint you have experienced could be caused by an irritant reaction or side effects from the use of the ointment that you used. However, other possibilities such as purging can also occur. Purging is a condition of the skin disorders due to exposure to a certain chemical substance, but only occurs temporarily and the skin condition can return to normal. Purging can appear as pimples, blackheads, reddish rashes, itching, peeling skin and streaks. Purging can occur on part or all of the face depending on the type of active ingredient in the treatment product used and the type of skin they have.
The deterioration process generally takes place while actually having the benefit of removing dead skin layers, opening pores, controlling oil and minimizing bacteria.
Ideally before using the ointment, it is advisable to consult with a dermatologist to get an examination of how severe the acne is and to choose the best treatment. If you are in doubt, you can temporarily stop using the ointment and consult directly about your skin condition with the nearest dermatologist.
Do not rub excessively facial skin, avoid using creams or beauty products that can worsen the condition of the skin, use facial cleansing products that are suitable for your facial skin type, compress with cold water if it feels itchy and reddish.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
