Who is Duac acne treatment suitable for?

How does Duac Gel for acne work?

Duac acne spot gel is applied to the skin daily. The dual action active ingredients clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide work simultaneously. Clindamycin is an antibiotic that prevents bacteria from reproducing and controls the inflammation of the skin. Benzoyl peroxide reduces the number of whiteheads and blackheads by causing the top layer of skin to break down and shed. Another feature of benzoyl peroxide is that it kills bacteria. Both active ingredients make Duac spot treatment a good choice for treating mild to moderate acne.

Common side effects of Duac prescription treatment are:

  • Itching, peeling, or burning skin
  • Redness of the skin

These side effects tend to be mild. If you notice any of the above side effects, use Duac daily gel less often.

In rare cases, Duac can cause stomach cramps and diarrhoea as it contains an antibiotic. If you experience any severe side effects, you must stop using Duac acne gel and speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

Important Information

Duac Acne Gel FAQs

Duac 5% gel is a dual-action medicine that fights bacteria causing acne. Clindamycin is an antibiotic that stops bacteria from growing, and benzoyl peroxide kills bacteria. As a result, most people see an improvement in their skin within 30 days.

Duac gel can be used to treat moderate acne where there is inflammation of the skin. Cystic acne is a severe form of acne and so may require another form of treatment

Yes, Duac once daily gel can be used for back acne. Duac is applied directly onto the skin.

A thin layer of Duac gel should be applied to the entire affected area of the skin, not just individual spots. For example, if applying to the face, you should use a fingertip amount of Duac.

Acne caused by hormonal imbalances can be treated with Duac acne gel. However, contraceptive medication is also an option to restore hormonal balance and can be used alongside other topical products.

Duac daily gel can start to work in as little as 48 hours, although it can take between 2 and 6 weeks before you can see an improvement. You should not use Duac for more than 12 weeks.

Benzoyl peroxide can help with inflammation of the skin in rosacea. Your doctor or pharmacist can advise you if Duac gel is suitable for you.

Duac acne medication is not recommended in pregnancy as there is only limited information on how safe it is to use. It is unknown if the ingredients in Duac gel can be passed into the mother’s milk, so for this reason, we cannot prescribe Duac to breastfeeding mothers.

Usually, any prescription medication would require an appointment with the doctor, but at Click2Pharmacy, we have prescribing pharmacists. This means you can buy Duac acne gel directly from us. All you need to do is fill out a consultation form, which our team will review. Once approved, your medication will be delivered to your door.
