Clindamycin and Benzoyl peroxide topical applied together twice a day for 10 weeks proved to be more effective in treatment of moderate-to-severe facial acne lesions. It is also prescribed for people with mild-to-moderate acne to be applied once or two times daily, leaving on the skin for 2 hours then rinse it off with warm water then pat skin dry.

Side-effects: High doses may prompt unreasonable skin reactions. Do not use benzoyl peroxide topical together with Tretinoin (Renova, Retin-A, Tretin-X) to avoid severe skin irritation.
