How to use Dalacin

Always follow the specific instructions of your nurse or doctor if you have been prescribed this medication. In the absence of this, follow the directions below:

  • Remember to wash your hands before and immediately after using the cream
  • Remove the cap from one 5mg tube of cream
  • Screw one of the disposable applicators onto the tube in place of the removed cap
  • Squeeze the tube of cream gently so that the cream is forced into the applicator (the plunger will stop moving once the applicator is full)
  • Unscrew the applicator and insert as far as is comfortable into the vagina
  • Slowly push the applicator plunger until all the cream has been inserted into the vagina
  • Dispose of the used applicator and empty tube
  • Repeat this daily for 7 consecutive days of treatment, even if you think the infection has cleared


The active ingredient in Clindamycin Cream is clindamycin phosphate, at a strength of 2% w/w.

Other ingredients in the cream are: sorbitan stearate, benzyl alcohol, propylene glycol, polysorbate 60, stearic acid, cetyl palmitate, cetostearyl alcohol, water and liquid paraffin.


Insert one full tube of clindamycin cream into your vagina once daily for 7 consecutive days, unless instructed otherwise by your prescribing nurse, doctor or pharmacist. If in doubt, seek medical advice about the correct dosage. You should always finish the full course of treatment to avoid reinfection.

If you forget to take a dose of clindamycin cream during the course of treatment, take it as soon as you remember and carry on with the treatment as before. If it is already time for your next dose of the cream when you remember, take the original dose and continue with your treatment as usual from then on. Do not double-up or take more than one dose of the cream to make up for a missed dose.

Common side effects

The following side effects are reported in around 1 to 10 users of the cream:

  • Local skin inflammation and irritation
  • Irritation of the vagina or cervix
