What is Dalacin cream?

Dalacin cream is a vaginal cream that can treat bacterial vaginosis (bacterial infection of the vagina). It contains the generic (non-branded) medicine clindamycin phosphate, which is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria causing the infection. It relieves unpleasant symptoms that bacterial vaginosis can cause.

This includes:

  • a thin grey or white vaginal discharge
  • a strong odour (especially after sex)

Side effects and contraindications

Like with any medicine you take, Dalacin cream comes with potential side effects. Not everyone will get them, but it is good to be aware of side effects, especially if you feel unwell when using this treatment.

Common side effects of Dalacin cream include:

  • inflammation or infection of the vulva and vagina
  • itching
  • stomach cramps

Uncommon side effects of Dalacin cream include:

  • allergic reactions
  • inflammation of the vagina
  • UTI (urinary tract infection)
  • headaches
  • dizziness
  • yeast infection (body)

There are more serious side effects, but it is not known how common they are.

These include:

  • severe diarrhoea
  • blood in your poo
  • fever
  • abnormal bleeding from the uterus
  • inflammation of the lining of the large intestine (pseudomembranous colitis)

If you get any of the common side effects above, it is advised to speak to your doctor. You may find that you need an alternative treatment to get rid of bacterial vaginosis symptoms. Should you get serious side effects, you must get urgent medical help.

If you are currently taking medication, some may interact with Dalacin cream. You should let your doctor know if you are taking erythromycin (an antibiotic) as this may interact with treatment. You should tell your doctor if you have recently taken any other kind of medication, including those bought without a prescription.
