About Daple C Gel 15gm

Daple C Gel 15gm belongs to the class of dermatological preparations called 'antiacne' used to treat acne (pimples). Acne is a skin condition that is common and occurs when hair follicles are blocked with dead skin cells and oil. The acne-causing bacteria feeds on sebum (natural oil produced by skin) causing redness and swelling.

Daple C Gel 15gm is a combination of two medicines, namely: Adapalene (human-made vitamin A) and Clindamycin (antibiotic). Adapalene (human-made vitamin A) works by loosening the cells on the skin’s surface and unblocks pores by reducing the production of oil in the skin thereby reducing the formation of pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads on the skin surface. Clindamycin belongs to the class of antibiotics that works by inhibiting the production of essential proteins that are necessary for bacteria to grow, multiply and increase in numbers. Altogether it stops or slows down the growth of bacteria and prevents the growth of acne.

Daple C Gel 15gm is only for external use. Take a small amount of Daple C Gel 15gm on the finger and apply it as a thin layer on the clean and dry affected area. Avoid contact of Daple C Gel 15gm with nose, ears, mouth, or eyes. In case Daple C Gel 15gm comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with warm water thoroughly. Your doctor will advise you how often you take Daple C Gel 15gm based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience skin peeling, dry skin, irritation, redness, itching, or burning sensation at the site of application. Most of these side effects of Daple C Gel 15gm do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to Daple C Gel 15gm or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Do not apply Daple C Gel 15gm to cuts, open wounds, broken, sunburnt or sensitive areas of skin. Avoid sun exposure while using Daple C Gel 15gm as it may make the skin more sensitive to sunlight and cause sunburn. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen while going out to protect your skin from sunburn. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please inform your doctor before taking Daple C Gel 15gm. Do not apply Daple C Gel 15gm in large amounts or use for a long time than prescribed as it does not give quick or better results but increases the risk of side effects such as redness, irritation, skin peeling, or discomfort. If you have intestine problems or eczema, please inform your doctor before taking Daple C Gel 15gm. 

Uses of Daple C Gel 15gm

Acne (pimples)

Medicinal Benefits

Daple C Gel 15gm is a combination of two drugs; namely, Adapalene and Clindamycin used to treat acne (pimples). Adapalene is a retinoid (human-made vitamin A) that loosens the cells in the skin’s surface and unblocks pores by reducing the production of oil in the skin. Thereby, decreases pimples, spots, whiteheads and blackheads. Also, Adapalene increases the production of new skin cells and helps in natural exfoliation (removal of dead skin cells) of outer layers of the skin. Clindamycin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that acts against both aerobic (grow in the presence of oxygen) and anaerobic (grow in the absence of oxygen) gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Clindamycin inhibits the production of essential proteins that are necessary for bacteria to grow, multiply and increase in numbers. Together it stops or slows down the growth of bacteria, causing acne and heals the skin by reducing swelling and redness.

Directions for Use

Wash your hands before and after applying Daple C Gel 15gm. Before using it, wash the affected area with water.
