A total of 75 patients with inflammatory acne vulgaris were divided into three groups. Group A was treated with combination of 4% nicotinamide and 1% clindamycin combination, Group B was treated with plain 1 % clindamycin and Group C which was considered to have resistance to local antibiotics due to no response to treatment was treated with the combination. At the end of 8 weeks the results were compared. It was concluded that addition of nicotinamide was of not much value in treating inflammatory acne and results were some as for plain clindamycin and also the combination did not offer much relief in treatment of resistant acne.
