I read somewhere that you should not use Benzaclin if have Ulcerative Collitis. Is that true?
Click on the link for important information:
Before using BenzaClin
Do not use BenzaClin if you are allergic to benzoyl peroxide or clindamycin (Cleocin, Clina-Derm, Clindets).
Although this medicine is applied to the skin, your body may absorb enough clindamycin to cause serious side effects. You may not be able to use BenzaClin if you have:
inflammation of your intestines (also called enteritis);
ulcerative colitis; or
if you have ever had severe diarrhea caused by antibiotic medicine.
It is not known whether benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using BenzaClin. It is not known whether benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while you are using benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin.
