Initial Breakout On Topical Clindamycin?

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I have been using Dalacin T for a week now which is a topical form of clindamycin, and have started to notice my skin worsen. Strangely I have not had any inflamed acne (what I usually get), but my entire face is covered in unisightly, small - moderate flesh coloured bumps. There are also 'holes' on my cheeks which I think are blackheads, they're kind of hard to describe. They are very visible in certain lights (unfortunately in lighting that I'm in every day such as fluro. ones at school and natural daylight) and I was just wondering if this could be an IB? Has anyone ever experienced an IB with a topical antibiotic before?

This is the first time I've ever been to a doctor about my acne so I don't really know what to expect! I have been told to use it for a month and see how it goes.
