Acne board


I started using differin and clindamycin two and half weeks ago and since day one my skin has been breaking out and I have developed severe acne. I'm really hoping this is the 'initial breakout' that I've heard could occur but I'm freaking out. I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm too far in to stop using it but I'm afraid of it not clearing up. I want to give it time but how much longer should I wait?? I'm scared it's just going to continue like this. It was bad when I went on it, but it's terrible now. I know it's only been just over two weeks, but I'm scared. My face hurts and I don't want to see anyone. Can anyone relate to this?
