More information about Dalacin Cream
Dalacin Cream is a topical treatment used to combat moderate to severe bacterial infections, most commonly bacterial vaginosis.
When used to treat bacterial vaginosis, you will administer doses with an applicator. This is a plunger-type device that is inserted into the vagina.
A course of treatment usually lasts between three and seven consecutive days. It is important that you always complete the course your doctor advises.
Please note, this treatment has been known to damage latex condoms and diaphragms.
Dalacin Cream contains the active ingredient clindamycin phosphate. As an antibiotic, clindamycin prevents the bacteria that cause bacterial vaginosis from multiplying.
This is achieved by inhibiting the bacteria’s ability to produce the essential proteins needed for growth and replication. Your immune system can then more easily clear the infection.
You must continue to use this treatment for the recommended duration of the course, even if your symptoms improve.
You should always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has advised.
Full instructions (and diagrams) will be detailed in the patient leaflet. If you have any questions, please contact your doctor or pharmacist.
Dalacin Cream requires the use of an applicator. When full, the applicator contains approximately 5 grams (one dose).
A summary of how to use this treatment follows:

Please note, with vaginal use, this treatment has been known to damage latex condoms and diaphragms.
You should visit your doctor once you have completed the course, so they can check whether the infection has cleared.
It is also important that you inform your doctor if you experience diarrhoea.
