What is Treclin gel?

Treclin is used on the skin to treat acne in patients 12 years and older. Treclin contains the active substances lindamycin and tretinoin.

How does Treclin work?

The active substances in Treclin are more effective when combined than when used separately.

Clindamycin is an antibiotic. It limits the growth of bacteria associated with acne and the inflammation caused by these bacteria.

Tretinoin normalises the growth of superficial skin cells and causes normal shedding of the cells that clog the hair follicles in areas with acne. This prevents the buildup of sebum and the formation of early acne lesions (blackheads and whiteheads)

How is Treclin used?

The recommended dose is: A pea-sized amount of Treclin should be applied once daily at bedtime.

Wash your face gently with mild soap and warm water and pat your skin dry with a towel. Squeeze a pea-sized amount of gel onto the fingertip. Dab the gel on your forehead, chin, nose and both cheeks, and then gently spread it evenly over your whole face. Do not use more than the amount that has been suggested by your doctor, or apply the product more frequently than instructed. Too much medication may irritate the skin, and will not give faster
or better results.

Exposure to natural or artificial light (such as a sunlamp) should be avoided.
