    What is Treclin Gel used to treat?

    Treclin Gel is a prescription medication used to treat acne, a common skin condition that causes pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Acne occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It is characterised by the presence of pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads, which can appear on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. Acne can affect people of all ages and can be caused by a variety of factors including genetics, stress, certain medications, and the use of certain skincare or cosmetic products.

    What is the active ingredient in Treclin Gel?

    Treclin Gel contains two active ingredients: clindamycin and tretinoin. Clindamycin is an antibiotic that works by killing the bacteria that cause acne, while tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that helps to unclog pores and reduce inflammation. Clindamycin and tretinoin are both topical medications, meaning that they are applied directly to the skin. Tretinoin can also be purchased on its own as a topical treatment for acne, fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation issues.

    Is Tretinoin a prescription drug in the UK?

    Yes, tretinoin is a prescription drug in the UK. You can purchase prescription tretinoin cream online from UK Meds. Simply select the medication and complete our free online consultation which ensures that the medication is right for you.

    Will my dermatologist give me Treclin Gel?

    Whether or not your dermatologist will prescribe Treclin Gel for you will depend on several factors, including the severity of your acne, your medical history, and your response to previous acne treatments. If you are experiencing moderate to severe acne and have not responded well to other treatments, you may consider prescribing Treclin Gel as part of your acne treatment regimen.

    Can you get Treclin Gel on the NHS?

    In general, the NHS will only provide prescription medications if they are considered to be clinically necessary and cost-effective. This means that your GP or dermatologist would need to determine that Treclin Gel is the most appropriate treatment for your acne, and that there are no other suitable alternatives available. It's worth noting that the availability of medications can vary depending on your location and the specific policies of your local NHS Trust. Rather than doing this, you can purchase Treclin Gel online from UK Meds by completing our free online consultation. 

    Google Web Story: Can I get Treclin Gel on the NHS?

    Our handy Google Web Story explains the common question our customers ask us: Can I get Treclin Gel on the NHS? Take a look at it below:

    Does Treclin Gel need a prescription?

    Yes, Treclin Gel is a prescription-only medication in the UK and many other countries. This means that you cannot purchase it over the counter without a valid prescription from a healthcare provider. Both of the ingredients in Treclin Gel are powerful medications that can cause side effects if not used correctly or in the appropriate dosage. As a result, this medication is only available on prescription to ensure that they are used safely and effectively.

    Can I get Treclin Gel from my GP?

    Yes, Treclin Gel is a medication that can be prescribed by a GP (general practitioner) or a dermatologist in the UK. A GP will be able to assess your condition and determine whether Treclin Gel is a suitable treatment option for you. They may also advise you on other treatments or lifestyle changes that can help to manage your acne.

    Can a pharmacist prescribe Treclin gel?

    No, a pharmacist cannot prescribe Treclin gel. Pharmacists can provide advice on how to use Treclin gel safely and effectively, but they cannot prescribe it. However, in some countries, pharmacists may have limited prescribing authority under certain circumstances, such as in emergency situations or for certain types of medications.

    Can I buy Treclin over the counter?

    Treclin is not available over the counter as it is a prescription-only medication. It is important to use Treclin only as directed by a healthcare provider, as it can cause side effects and may not be appropriate for everyone. If you are interested in using Treclin gel you can complete our free online consultation form that will determine if it will be an effective treatment for you. 

    Are there any alternative acne treatments to Treclin gel?

    There are several alternative acne treatments to Treclin gel that may be recommended by a healthcare provider depending on the severity and type of acne, as well as any other underlying health conditions that a person may have. Some alternative acne treatments include:

    • Other topical retinoids

    • Antibiotics

    • Some hormonal treatments

    • Benzoyl peroxide (A medication that works by killing acne-causing bacteria and reducing inflammation.)

    Can I buy Treclin gel at UK Meds?

    Yes, you can purchase Treclin Gel online from UK Meds. Simply select your medication, complete our free online consultation and select your delivery method to complete your purchase. Alternatively, we have a number of different acne medications that you can browse, including tretinoin.
