  • Clindamycin Phosphate Question AND Advice Needed

    This is a two part question: 1. I am 30 years old and have always had an issue with flushing and super sensitive skin. Just the last year, however, my face started to break out in bumps and flush. I was told by my dermatologist that I have rosacea, and prescribed me on a topical med that was awesome, but I found out it's not safe to use if trying to get pregnant. So I just started Clindamycin Phosphate and am using it as a moisturizer and medication in one. The first two weeks was great. Then I didn't use it for three days. I started it again on Friday and my face exploded with red bumps all over my trouble spots (my cheeks). Did I just piss off my skin or what? Why would it work the first time and then now when started up again, cause a reaction?

    2. Do most people get acne looking red and dry bumps as a result of the rosacea? That's my issue and I could even deal with the flushing, but the bumps are embarrassing. I never had acne or any skin issues until a year or two ago.
