Currently I am on the Clindamycin topical phosphate solution and it seems too harsh for my skin. I am considering a switch to the Gel form. I tried the lotion and it made my skin greasy. Just wondering what you have tried and liked. Thanks.

I've only ever used the gel form. I still have to use it sparingly though because it makes my face peel if I overdo it.

I was told by the UK's top derm that ONLY the solution works effectively. The alcohol in the solution makes the clindamycin penetrate the skin more effectively.
