Dermatology Question: Pregnancy Acne Cures

Patient : Hello, I have a product question in regards to Clindamyacin Phosphate Topical Solution, USP Pledgelet, 1%. I am in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my dermatologist told me not to use it anymore. After doing some research online, many medical professionals are saying it is safe to use topical clindamyacin during pregnancy. What gives? Is this true? Because I would so prefer to use it if it is true Thanks!
Symptoms:  Acne on chin, jaw, around mouth area
