Description of Evoclin Foam

Evoclin Foam contains the active ingredient Clindamycin, an antibiotic commonly prescribed to treat acne caused by the bacteria known as Propionibacteria acnes (P.acnes). This bacteria is a normal inhabitant of our skin and, for the most part, exists harmoniously so we seldom think about it. However, as pores become clogged with excess dead skin cells and oils (sebum), your face, neck, and back can become the perfect environment for the P. acnes to thrive. These outbreaks are common during puberty when hormone levels are increased and the excess oil is a great food source for the P. acnes bacteria.

Evoclin Foam Stops Bacterial Growth and Replication

Evoclin Foam is applied to affected skin areas as directed by your doctor or dermatologist where it works to interfere with essential proteins needed by the bacteria in order to grow and multiply. As their population dwindles, Evoclin Foam will help to eliminate some of the excess oil and dirt from your pores. Evoclin is not a cure for acne, but it can help to reduce the cause and minimize the effects of acne. You must be patient as it could take several weeks before you notice any positive results.

Conditions Treated by Evoclin Foam

There are small sebaceous glands found just under the surface of our skin whose job it is to produce sebum to keep our skin supple. Your pores allow this oil to find its way to the surface. During puberty the sebum production increases and instead of our dead skin cells sloughing off unnoticed, they can become stuck to the oil and block the pores where P. acnes decides is quite inviting.

As the bacteria digest the oil trapped in your pores, a fatty waste is produced that irritates the pore linings. This causes redness and inflammation and you may begin to notice whiteheads form. It is important not to pop these pimples as it can leave permanent scarring.

Before Applying Evoclin Foam

Ask your doctor about the use of Evoclin Foam if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding to be certain it will not affect your unborn or nursing baby. You should not use Evoclin Foam if you have ulcerative colitis, enteritis, or have had severe diarrhea due to other antibiotic medicine.

Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx medicine you take, including herbal or vitamin supplements so your doctor can be certain Evoclin Foam is safe to use. Do not use Evoclin Foam on anyone under the age 12 years unless directed by a physician.

Evoclin Foam Precautions and Proper Use

Inform your doctor if are using other topical acne treatments as this could cause the affected areas to become very dry and flaky. Dispensing Evoclin Foam directly into your hands could cause the product to melt from the warmth of your skin before you have a chance to apply it. Use the clear cap or a cool surface and use your fingertips to apply small amounts onto the affected area. Evoclin Foam contains alcohol so do not apply while smoking or near open flames.
