What is Dalacin Vaginal Cream?

Dalacin Vaginal Cream contains the active ingredient Clindamycin phosphate that has powerful antibiotic properties. The cream is inserted directly into the vagina to kill the bacteria that causes the unpleasant, fishy discharge this is a result of bacterial vaginosis (BV). 

Each box of Dalacin Cream is supplied with disposal applicators that make every application easy and mess-free. After just 7 days of use, you will be left feeling more comfortable, refreshed and confident. 

 

What is Dalacin Vaginal Cream used for?

BV is one of the most common causes of unusual vaginal discharge. Although around half of women do not experience any symptoms, some will notice a grey-whitish or thin and watery discharge that has a particularly offensive, fishy odour that may become worse after sex.

Dalacin Cream is an effective treatment for BV and with daily applications quickly clears the infection. If you are unsure whether you are suffering from BV, you can purchase a vaginal infection self-test to help you make sure you are getting the best treatment for you.

 

How does Dalacin Vaginal Cream work?

Dalacin Cream is inserted deep inside the vagina allowing the active ingredient, clindamycin phosphate, to target the bacteria that cause BV, so it can quickly kill the infection at its source, leaving you to get on with your day.

 

Alternatives to Dalacin Vaginal Cream

BV is a bacterial infection and requires antibiotics to help clear the infection. Dalacin Cream contains clindamycin phosphate, however, metronidazole is another highly effective antibiotic used to treat BV. 

At The Independent Pharmacy, our range of BV treatment includes both Metronidazole Tablets and Zidoval Gel, which is a metronidazole gel inserted into the vagina that works similarly to Dalacin Cream. Metronidazole treatments may be more suitable for people who cannot use treatments containing clindamycin.
