Been on retin a .05% and I'm not sure what to think. Wondering if it is going to work or not.

On retin a for 2+ months now. Noticing more breakouts in places I am not typically prone. (Cheeks, forehead) was having some hormonal acne and prescribed tretinoin. The cream seems to have made it worse. (I know I'm past the purging period) I am so ready to give up. I'm just wondering if it will eventually clear up. Also, I used the cream every night and my skin never Became irritated in any way. Do I need to up the dosage? Or is my skin just not responsive to retin a? Help would be much appreciated.
