Thanks for writing in.

You are right clindamycin alone doesnt help the small zits from coming up.

You may use clinda+BPO on the zits in morning and Clinda+adapelene all over the face at night. (this prevents new eruptions)

I am sorry I am not allowed to write brand names of prescription medicines here.

You will have to consult a dermatologist personally for this.

Elovera gel is good enough (Alokem gel-75% aloevera). Do not use creams as it may increase the acne.

For oily skin, a gel based lotion is the best, which you can get froma cosmetic shop. (lotus is good enough).

Evion is good for the skin in the long term
