Like any other drugs, clindoxyl gel is also have allergy/side effects for certain people. Sometime it can interact with certain other drug. As you developed the complaints the next day itself it is mostly due to allergic reaction rather than side effects. Usual side effects of the gel are peeling of skin, itching, reddish at the site of application. Any how discontinue the application and consult your dr.
