Clindamycin is a prescription antibiotic for serious infections caused by bacteria. It can be used for cuts if your dr. prescribed it for you. If your dr. did'nt prescribe for you, then I"d just use over the counter ointment for cuts. If you think that the cut is infected you should see a dr. good luck,
It really is not your all around antibiotic,,unless a doctor prescribed this for you don't take it at all..Not all antibiotic are for everyone what type cuts is this if they are not infected there is no reason to use a antibiotic check with your doctor before using any antibiotic these get old and if you don't have enough for what you need it well do you no good and also there are many causions when using this i say no unless your doctor prescribed this just for you and this problems..
Only if they become infected. A normal cut won't need it.
