Should I continue what I was doing?

For the past three days I have been using Noxzema Triple Clean Antibacterial Cleanser (with Triclosan) and after an initial breakout it has been working quite well. My skin is looking remarkably clearer and its been only 3 days. (I also use Dove day lotion and night cream and dilutedACV before i go to bed) I went to the dermatologist today and he gave me Retin-A, Zoderm (8.5% BP Face wash) and Doxycycline pills. I have a few cysts on my right cheek and some red marks on my chin and mustache area. I also have quite a few large red bumps on my forehead (I haven't been using Noxzema there). I have some blackheads on my nose, too.

So my question is, should I continue what I'm doing (the Noxzema and Dove moisturizers) or should I do what the derm. said?

By the way I have very sensitive skin that drys out easily.
