Treclin Gel contains two active ingredients, Clindamycin and Tretinoin. The work of Clindamycin is to kill acne bacteria that cause redness and blackheads. It is an antibiotic.
Tretinoin exfoliates. It reduces the ability of skin cells to stick together; dead skin cells shed instead of them blocking follicles to cause spots. The combined two substances make Treclin an effective treatment within 10- 12 weeks of consistent use.

- Have a history of hypersensitivity to Clindamycin or Tretinoin.
- Have regional enteritis, ulcerative colitis, or a history of any antibiotic-associated colitis.
