No they both are different antibiotics. Better take another table but content should be azithromycin. This is only temporary solution though. You can consult me through Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment for permanent solution for skin problems.

I have been using azifast gel ie azithromycin for 1 year along with epiduo cream at night, it seems not to be working, before this I used to use medicine ie clindamycin and different cream at night. The way I applied both was different azithromycin twice daily, but clindamycin, I apply it before applying any makeup or sunscreen or anything and on top of it I applied the makeup. It was working well. Can I just start trying to use clindamycin the old way again. I was using azithromycin for 1 year, will that cause an issue? Also medicine was a product I got in the uae, in india I am getting clindamycin phosphate gel 1%,is it the same, is it ok to use that?

treatment depends on the grade..Acne or pimples... Due to hormonal changes..Oily skin causes it...Common in adolescent age...May occur in adults also.. Food like Oily foods, ice cream, chocolate and sweets increase it.. Treatment depends on the grade of pimples or acne..So, please send photos by direct online consultation as it's a must to see which grade of pimples or acne for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

yes its absolutely right. azifast being a antibiotic can cause vomiting in few patients due to increasing the acidity of the stomach. ocid is given to decrease this acid production and relieve you of the symptoms

What is the difference of azithromycin vs. azithromycin. What is the purpose of azithromycin? Is amoxicillin control the severe cough or shall I use azithromycin?

Hi, firstly if you are self-medicating, you shouldn't. You need to see a doctor for a severe cough. Secondly, to answer your question. Both are antibiotics and their use depends on physicians choice for the particular condition the patient is suffering from.

Acne treatment needs a combination of approach. Please follow this regimen. 1. Apply epiduo cream in night keep it for an hour and wash your face. 2. Apply dew soft moisturizer and sleep. 3. In early morning apply clindac gel. 4. After bath apply suncote gel. Carry on with this regimen for a month you will get improvement. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Improper hair care and stress may aggravate hairfall. You should also find out if your blood reports are normal. According to Ayurved, If you have increased acidity - that too contributes to hairfall. You may start taking these foods into your daily meals to help you- yougurt, paneer, dals, til, nachni, alsi seeds.
