Duac Spot Cream – Antibacterial Spot Cream
Duac spot cream is an antibacterial spot cream that contains two medicines called clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide. These are known as ‘anti-acne preparations’.
When duac spot cream is provided, it’s used for treating mild to moderate acne. The two medicines included form an antibacterial spot cream; Clindamycin is an antibiotic which stops any bacteria involved in acne from replicating, Benzoyl peroxide reduces the amount of blackheads and whiteheads, as well as killing any bacteria that causes acne.
When these are combined they form an antibacterial spot cream that works to fight bacteria that causes acne, treat any existing black heads, white heads, and spots, whilst also lowering the number of red/inflamed spots.
This Duac Spot Cream is suitable for adults and children over the age of twelve.

Duac Once Daily Gel Ingredients
The Duac Once Daily Gel Ingredients are called Clindamycin phosphate and Benzoyl peroxide. Both of these Duac Once Daily Gel Ingredients combine to create the acne treatment gel.
Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Cream
Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Cream is one of the active ingredients that make up Duac Once Daily Gel.
This active ingredient called Benzoyl peroxide is known as a medicine type called keratolytic. It works by breaking down a protein called keratin. When Benzoyl peroxide acne cream is applied to the skin, it breaks down the top layer of skin cells and causes them to shed. This will help breakdown any blackheads or whiteheads and unblocks the sebaceous glands. As well as all of the above, it also stops any new blackheads or whiteheads from forming.

Duac Once Daily Gel Review
“All I can say is wow! Fantastic product I’ve had acne for about 20 years I’m 34, and nothing worked for me and at my age and still spotty it’s very depressing, then my doctor told me about Duac. I used it for about a week and my face went a bit dry so I gave it a couple of days and started again and now my face is completely clear and my scars have faded! If you have got acne then this is amazing! I’ve never been so happy with my skin and I’m getting married soon and over the moon that my face will be clear for that. ”

Important information about Duac
- Benzoyl peroxide can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Avoid exposing the treated areas of skin to excessive sunlight, or to sunbeds or sunlamps. If you can’t avoid sun exposure you should wear appropriate protective clothing such as a hat, or use a suitable sunscreen lotion.
- This product may bleach hair and coloured fabrics including clothing, towels and bed linen. Be careful to avoid getting the gel on these materials.
- When clindamycin is taken by mouth it can sometimes cause inflammation of the bowel (colitis). Although this is very unlikely to occur when you use the antibiotic on the skin, if you get diarrhoea either during or after using Duac gel, particularly if it becomes severe or persistent, or contains blood or mucus, you should stop using it and consult your doctor immediately.
Duac should be used with caution by
- Patients with sensitive or eczema-prone skin.
- People with a history of inflammation of part of the intestines (enteritis), ulcerative colitis or inflammation of the large intestine due to antibiotic treatment (antibiotic-associated colitis).
- People who have recently used any other medicines containing clindamycin or erythromycin. This is because the acne bacteria on your skin may have developed resistance to clindamycin, which could make Duac gel less effective.
Duac should not be used by
- People who are allergic to benzoyl peroxide, clindamycin, the related antibiotic lincomycin, or any other ingredient of the gel.
- Children under 12 years of age.
Can I use Duac gel while pregnant or breastfeeding?
- Are you pregnant or breastfeeding? make sure your doctor knows before using Duac gel.
- Use with caution during pregnancy.Check with your doctor.
- The safety of Duac gel for use during breastfeeding has not been established. Clindamycin passes into breast milk when taken by mouth. For this reason, Duac gel should be used with caution during breastfeeding and only if the benefits to the mother outweigh any possible risk to the nursing infant. If your doctor says you can use Duac gel while breastfeeding, make sure you don’t apply it to areas where it could be ingested by the baby or transferred to the baby’s skin while you are feeding. Stop using the medicine and consult your doctor if the child develops diarrhoea while you’re using Duac gel.

Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point. It causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that’s hot or painful to touch.
Acne most commonly develops on the:
Face – this affects almost everyone with acne
Back – this affects more than half of people with acne
Chest – this affects about 15% of people with acne
Types of spots
There are six main types of spot caused by acne:
Blackheads – small black or yellowish bumps that develop on the skin; they’re not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces pigmentation (colouring).
Whiteheads – have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and won’t empty when squeezed.
Papules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sore.
Pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pus.
Nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful.
Cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they’re large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring.
What can I do if I have acne?
These self-help techniques may be useful:
Don’t wash affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse.
Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse.
Don’t try to “clean out” blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring.
Avoid using too much make-up and cosmetics. Use water-based products that are described as non-comedogenic (this means the product is less likely to block the pores in your skin).
Completely remove make-up before going to bed.
If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free, water-based emollient.
Regular exercise can’t improve your acne, but it can boost your mood and improve your self-esteem. Shower as soon as possible once you finish exercising, as sweat can irritate your acne.
Wash your hair regularly and try to avoid letting your hair fall across your face.
Although acne can’t be cured, it can be controlled with treatment. Several creams, lotions and gels for treating spots are available at pharmacies.
If you develop acne, it’s a good idea to speak to your pharmacist for advice. Products containing a low concentration of benzoyl peroxide may be recommended – but be careful, as this can bleach clothing.
If your acne is severe or appears on your chest and back, it may need to be treated with antibiotics or stronger creams that are only available on prescription.
When to seek medical advice
Treatments can take up to three months to work, so don’t expect results overnight. Once they do start to work, the results are usually good.
Acne is very common in teenagers and younger adults. About 80% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne.
Most people have acne on and off for several years before their symptoms start to improve as they get older. Acne often disappears when a person is in their mid-twenties.
Your GP can diagnose acne by looking at your skin. This involves examining your face, chest and back for the different types of spot, such as blackheads or sore, red nodules.
How many spots you have and how painful and inflamed they are will help determine how severe your acne is. This is important in planning your treatment.
Four grades can be used to measure the severity of acne:
Grade 1 (mild) – acne is mostly confined to whiteheads and blackheads, with just a few papules and pustules
Grade 2 (moderate) – there are multiple papules and pustules, which are mostly confined to the face
Grade 3 (moderately severe) – there’s a large number of papules and pustules, as well as the occasional inflamed nodule, and the back and chest are also affected by acne
Grade 4 (severe) – there’s a large number of large, painful pustules and nodules
Acne in Women
There’s a range of informally run message boards and blogs about acne on the web. You may find it supportive to read about other people’s experience of living with acne.
For example, talkhealth provides a free acne support and information community.
The Mix (formerly Get Connected) also has a website and helpline for teenagers and young people with emotional and other difficulties.
Make-up can help cover up scars and can be particularly useful for facial scars.
Camouflage make-up specially designed to cover up scars is available over the counter at pharmacies. You can also ask your GP for advice.
If you’re interested in learning more about covering a mark, scar, non-infectious skin condition or a tattoo, you can also visit the Changing Faces skin camouflage service or call 0300 012 0276.
