About Onexton (Clindamycin-Benzoyl Peroxide)

How does it work?

Onexton combines two active ingredients—Clindamycin Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide—to help fight bacterial infections that cause acne and folliculitis. It stops the growth of the bacteria that causes these conditions, reduces oil production, balances the skin's pH and reduces irritation.

What does it treat?

Onexton treats bacterial skin conditions, including folliculitis and acne. It helps clear these issues by fighting the bacteria and reducing skin irritation.

What forms does it come in?

Onexton is available as a gel that you apply directly to the affected skin in a thin layer. It’s usually applied once a day as directed by your medical provider.

Onexton vs. Clindamycin-Benzoyl Peroxide

Onexton is a brand-name combination of Clindamycin Phosphate and Benzoyl Peroxide. Clindamycin-Benzoyl Peroxide is the generic name for a medication with the same active ingredients. Both brand and generic forms combat bacterial infections on the skin.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a folliculitis prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Clindamycin 1.2 %-Benzoyl Peroxide 5 % Topical Gel (45 gram tube) start at $27.45.
