Why is my acne getting slightly worse?

Ok so for the past few days i’ve been drinking 4 bottles of water daily that are sixteen ounces. On sunday i started drinking 1 glass of vegetable juice a day. I began using epiduo forte prescribed by my doctor along with a gel to kill any infection. Every morning i use a black soap as a facial cleanser (i’m going to stop using it bc i feel like that’s making my acne worse). I been using those  products for the past 4 days & i’m noticing that my acne is getting slightly bigger & painful. My dermatologist had told me to expect this & that it was known as “the purging stage”. I just wanted to know if i am going through the purging stage right now or if there is something else making my acne worse. Any help would be appreciated
