I can understand your concern for pimples. These are most commonly teenage problem. These start appearing at the age of 13-14 years and then almost vanish by the age of 25 years. As you 20 years so it is quite usual at your age.

The reason for acne is due to hormones (chemicals which are influencing one or other body functions). In addition this can be due application of creamy cosmetics and due to the influence of certain other factors causing its aggravation.

For clindamycin gel I usually prescribe with berand name of Clinagel, Clincin gel, Clinsure or Nax gel.

All the best.
