I only used tretinoin (.025%) once, and two weeks later my face still burns!

What the hell. This is terrible. Two weeks ago I put on less than a pea-sized amount of 0.025% tretinoin gel followed by clindamycin phosphate 1%. The left side of my face started to burn, so I washed it off after 20 minutes. It's been two weeks now and the left side of my face is STILL feels like it's been sunburned. The texture is darker, rougher, and more shiny than the right side of my face. I have not been putting anything on it except for cetaphil gentle face cleanser for when I wash my face and cetaphil moisturizer. This is insane, any burn should have healed by now... I am worried.
