Lysine & Probiotics

I've just started using a probiotic every morning and a lysine pill twice a day (essential amino acid) for my hormonal acne. I also completely changed my diet and do not consume dairy, refined sugar, or meat. It has been 11 days and I'm breaking out on the left side of my face (lower jaw & cheek area) and the right side of my face (laugh line area). I'm not sure if this is "purging acne," but I have seen no positive change in my acne. I usually break out badly around my cheek, chin, and jaw when my period is on it's way. As of now, it is not. My forehead area is clear which I attribute to the food I'm eating (mainly plant based). Has anyone expreined this with lysine and/or a probiotic supplement?
