What is it?

Treclin contains the active substances clindamycin and tretinoin. Clindamycin is an antibiotic. It limits the growth of bacteria associated with acne and the inflammation caused by these bacteria. Tretinoin normalizes 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 build-up of sebum and the formation of early acne lesions (blackheads and whiteheads). These active substances are more effective when combined than when used separately. Treclin is used on the skin to treat acne in patients 12 years and older.

What is it used for?

Tretinoin has been shown to attenuate and reverse the signs of photodamage, such as coarse wrinkling.[1] Topical retinoids have shown beneficial efficacy and good safety profiles in the management of photodamaged skin, and as therapeutic anti-ageing agents.[2] It has been found that topical application of retinoic acid (0.025%) to chronically photodamaged skin regenerated and restored elastic fibers, and that there was a significant positive correlation between the amount of newly regenerated elastic fiber and the wrinkle improvement caused by retinoic acid.[3]

For scar treatment, medical papers show that excellent improvement was observed in the majority of patients (73.3%) in recent trials using tretinoin 0.025%.[4]

What you need to know before you use Treclin.

DO NOT use Treclin:

  • if you are allergic to clindamycin, tretinoin, or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
  • if you are allergic to lincomycin.
  • if you have a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis).
  • if you have a history of colitis with past antibiotic use which is characterised by prolonged or significant diarrhoea or abdominal cramps.
  • if you or a member of your family have ever suffered from skin cancer.
  • if you are suffering from acute eczema which is characterised by inflamed, red, dry and scaly skin.
  • if you are suffering from rosacea, a skin disease which affects the face and is characterised by redness, pimples and peeling.
  • if you are suffering from other acute inflammatory conditions of the skin (e.g. folliculitis), especially around the mouth (perioral dermatitis).
  • if you are suffering from certain special forms of acne vulgaris characterized by pustular and deep cystic nodular acne lesions (acne conglobata and acne fulminans).

If any of the above applies to you, do not use this medicine and talk to your doctor.
