Redness and warmness on the arm spreading to the elbow. On clindamycin, slow improvement. Should I wait?

i have some kind of infection on my right arm and red and hot like a sunburn . I went to stat care and they put me on clindamycin 300mgs 4 times a day. Just started it yesterday but it doesnt seem to be getting much better. It started at my shoulder and now its down past my elbow . Should I wait it out and see if the antibiotics work?
