diarrhea and benzaclin?

Recommended Posts

Benzaclin symptons is diarrhea and I was wondering if it may be coming because ever since I have been using this cream my stomach as been acting up and so has my bowel. It's 1 % clycidamin and 5% BP cream. Is it the cream?

If you REALLY overdosed on Benzaclin, you could absorb enough clindamycin to cause diarrhea--but only if you were allergic to it. The whole tub is like 50g and only 1% of it is Clindamycin...so even if you put all of it on your face at once, that'd only be 500mg, assuming it all got absorbed at once. Unlikely situation.

I'm allergic to erythromycin, taken orally, yet I was able to use Benzamycin, which is like Benzaclin except the antibiotic is erythromycin. I never had any ill systemic effects.

Keep on the path to clear skin with Benzaclin, you probably just ate something you shouldn't have.
