Amoxicillin, Clindamycin - Tiny Pimples, Help?

I won't stop breaking out, so I've finally decided to ditch the regimen after 14+ months and see my derm again. I hadn't been there for 2 years.

He gave me Amoxicillin 875mg 2x a day -- strong, I know!

and Clindamycin gel to be applied 1x or 2x a day.

I've been taking these medications for 2 weeks now, and this morning I noticed dozens of tiny bumps/pimples all over my forehead. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I haven't changed my makeup or face wash, so I think it's related to my medication.

I'm going to call my derm on Monday, but just curious if anyone else has experienced this problem and what it is--they don't appear to be whiteheads. They're only visible if I tilt my head in bright light.. then I can see the tiny bumps all over.

....It's really gross! I don't wanna go out for fear someone thinks I'm part reptile!
