Duac Gel

Duac Gel  combines clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide, belonging to the group of ‘anti-acne preparations.’ It’s specifically formulated for treating mild to moderate acne on the skin. Clindamycin acts as an antibiotic, inhibiting the reproduction of acne-causing bacteria, while benzoyl peroxide targets blackheads and whiteheads, also eliminating acne-related bacteria.

More Information

Duac, a prescription medication, offers relief for mild to moderate acne, spots, and pimples. These skin conditions stem from an overproduction of sebum, a substance that congests pores and fosters the accumulation of oil, leading to the formation of blackheads. When these blackheads become infected with bacteria, acne develops, predominantly affecting the face but also extending to areas like the neck and upper back. Duac Gel swiftly targets these pimples and aids in preventing the emergence of new impurities. Particularly suitable for individuals averse to or unable to take oral antibiotics similarly to  Benzoyl Peroxide.

Clindamycin and hydrous benzoyl peroxide are the active ingredients in Duac Gel. 

Other Ingredients: Carbomer 940, dimeticone, disodium lauryl sulfosuccinate, disodium edetate, glycerol, silica (colloidal hydrated), poloxamer 182, sodium hydroxide clindamycin, and hydrous benzoyl peroxide are the additional constituents.

When using DUAC gel once daily, it’s important to inform your doctor or pharmacist about any other medicines you’re currently using, have recently used, or might use. Specifically, mention if you’re using any other acne treatments, including topical antibiotics, as well as medicated or abrasive soaps and cleansers, or cosmetics with strong drying effects. Products containing large amounts of alcohol or astringents should also be disclosed, as they may lead to skin irritation when used alongside DUAC gel once daily. Additionally, DUAC gel once daily may reduce the effectiveness of certain acne medications like those containing tretinoin, isotretinoin, or tazarotene. In such cases, your doctor or pharmacist may recommend using these medications at different times of the day to minimise the risk of skin irritation. If severe skin irritation occurs, characterised by redness, dryness, itching, stinging, or burning, discontinue use and consult your doctor. Avoid using DUAC gel once daily simultaneously with erythromycin-containing medicines. Concurrent application of DUAC gel once daily with medications like dapsone and sulfacetamide may cause temporary skin or facial hair discolouration, typically in yellow or orange hues, which is not permanent. Moreover, one of the components in DUAC gel once daily can impact the effectiveness of certain general anaesthesia medications known as “neuromuscular blocking agents.” Therefore, it’s essential to inform your doctor or pharmacist if you’re planning to undergo surgery. For further information refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.

To apply DUAC gel once daily, begin by thoroughly removing any makeup. Cleanse the affected skin area well and rinse it with warm water, then gently pat it dry. Using your fingertips, apply a thin layer of gel to the entire affected skin area. Ensure to cover all areas with acne, not just individual spots, and avoid using too much gel.

For facial application, use an amount equivalent to a “finger tip” from the tube, extending from the tip of your finger to the first joint.

For both face and back, apply a total of two and a half “finger tips.”

If you experience excessive dryness or skin peeling, you can alleviate it by using an oil-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic moisturiser, reducing the frequency of DUAC gel once daily application, or temporarily stopping treatment to allow your skin to adjust. Consistent daily application is essential for the medication to be effective. Remember to wash your hands after applying the gel. Once the gel has dried, you can proceed with non-greasy makeup if desired. Always adhere to the instructions provided in the leaflet or as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. If unsure, seek clarification from your healthcare provider or refer to the Patient Information Leaflet.

If you observe any of the following serious side effects while using DUAC gel once daily, discontinue use and seek immediate medical attention as you may require urgent treatment: signs of an allergic reaction such as facial swelling, nettle rash, or difficulty breathing, severe or prolonged diarrhoea, or abdominal cramps, and severe burning, peeling, or itching. For other possible side effects, consider adjusting your usage by either reducing frequency or temporarily discontinuing use for one or two days before resuming. Common side effects, affecting less than 1 in 10 people, may include headache and sensations like burning, itching, or dryness at the application site, as well as skin redness, especially during initial use. Additionally, sensitivity to sunlight, skin pain, and dermatitis may occur. Uncommon side effects, affecting less than 1 in 100 people, may include tingling sensations and worsening of acne at the application site. While other side effects have been reported in a very small number of individuals, their exact frequency remains unknown and may include allergic reactions, intestinal inflammation, diarrhoea (including bloody diarrhoea), stomach pain, skin reactions, skin discolouration, and raised itchy rash (hives).
