Doctor prescribed me some clindamycin cream and I finished my treatment. Problem didn't go away. Why could that be?

In brief: Failed treatment

The medication was either not potent enough or the length of treatment not long enough.
In either case, the diagnosis may not have been correct to begin with if the treatment failed. Notify the doctor to see if there is a next step to better identify the problem or a next step in treatment that can be considered. Good luck.
