What is Duac?

This medicine contains two active ingredients called, clindamycin phosphate and benxoyl peroxide. These two medicines are both used to treat acne.

Clindamycin is a known antibiotic. This antibiotic is used to treat infections with bacteria. It prevents bacteria from producing protein, which are vital for their growth. Without these proteins the bacteria cannot grow and increase in numbers. As a result, the bacteria eventually die or are destroyed by the immune system.

Clindamycin helps to fight the bacteria associated with acne. Propionebacterium acne is a type of bacterium that lives off sebum produced by the sebaceous glands; they are located in the skin. This bacterium produces waste and fatty acids. Waste and fatty acids are detrimental to the skins appearance; they cause inflammation and spots on the skin.

What are the benefits?

Duac once daily is an effective acne medication that improves the appearance of acne prone skin by stopping the bacterial infection that causes it. By doing so, this medication stops the bacteria from spreading, thus eliminating the infection entirely. Duac is proven to be a particularly effective treatment for mild strains of acne like blackheads, whiteheads and inflamed red spots. Its gel formation means it is easy to apply and use.

How does it work?

Duac uses the active ingredients clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide, which work together to treat acne-prone skin.

Clindamycin phosphate inhibits the bacteria linked to Propionebacterium acnes from forming cell walls which protect bacteria and enable them to spread.

By preventing these cells walls from forming, clindamycin stops the bacterial infection from growing and spreading.

Benzoyl peroxide kills the bacterial infection by breaking down the protein that shapes part of the skins formation and helping to clear the sebaceous glands. These actions help prevent new acne spots from emerging in their place.

How do you use Duac gel?

Duac is available in a tube of 30g or 60g gel formation containing 5% of clindamycin phosphate and 1% of benzoyl peroxide.

You should use this medication exactly as prescribed by a doctor. Duac should be applied to the skin (face) once daily. If you are wearing any makeup, you must remove it before applying this treatment. The affected area should be washed and dried before application.

  • Dry carefully with a clean towel
  • Use a non-medicated wash to cleanse
  • Apply sparingly to the affected area
  • Wash and dry hands so as not to apply to unaffected areas of skin
  • Continue daily treatment for up to 12 weeks

find out more information on how to use this treatment, read the Duac patient information leaflet.

Precautions of using Duac acne treatment

Duac once daily gel is for people with mild to moderate forms of acne. However, Duac may not be suitable for people who are:

  • allergic to any of the ingredients found in the medication
  • suffering from gut problems
  • treating badly damaged skin
  • using medications that contain the antibiotic erythormycin

If you are currently using other acne treatments, medicated soaps or cleansers, cosmetics that have a strong drying effect or products that contain large amounts of alcohol or astringents then you must inform a doctor. If any of these products are used in combination with this medication your skin may become irritated over time.

What are the side effects of this medication?

All medications can cause side effects, including Duac once daily, though not everybody who uses this medication will get them.
