How should I use Acanya Gel?

Acanya Gel (benzoyl peroxide/ clinamycin) is gentle enough for daily use and can be applied under makeup or sunscreen. To use it, wash your face with a mild soap and apply a thin layer on the infected area. Wash your hands after applying Acanya Gel to avoid bleaching clothes or hair. Do not use Acanya Gel on open cuts or sores and avoid use around the eyes, nose, mouth, or lips. Acanya Gel is for external use only. After using Acanya Gel, make sure to wear sunscreen and protective clothes if you will be exposed to sunlight. Continue using Acanya Gel until your acne is completely cleared up, unless your doctor tells you otherwise. You may not notice effects of Acanya Gel on acne for up to two weeks, and its full effect may not be realized until after 12 weeks of treatment. However, using Acanya Gel may make your acne worse or cause a second infection. Contact your doctor if your symptoms do not seem to be improving or if your acne gets worse.
