I had a dental treatment with clindamycin about 2-3 months before i suddenly appeared in the ER to get Diagnosed with UC.
Believe it or not, one of the dermatologists I went to see a year after my diagnosis, even though I discussed me UC related concerns prior and during the appointment, actually prescribed Duac gel for me to use on my face.
I called him back after going to the manufacturers website and reading that people with UC should not use it. I called the office up - his response - it probably wouldn't get absorbed in any sufficient degree to cause me a problem. I said "No thank you, it's not worth it to me."
Meanwhile I started using Head and Shoulders shampoo and my folliculitis (self-diagnosed) problem has been 95% cured.
Do you think I should sue the dentist for giving me clindamycin?
