Cleocin Vaginal Cream (Clindamycin) is normally applied once daily for a cycle of medication lasting one or two weeks, but your individual dosage will depend on your current health condition and the severity of your symptoms. To administer the cream, use the included applicator to collect the prescribed amount of medication, insert it into the vagina, and press the plunger to dispense the dose. Never stop using the medication before being instructed to do so, even if your symptoms have disappeared, as the infection may not be gone and can return stronger or more resistant to treatment. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water before and after each application to prevent the medication from contacting other areas not being treated.
