@66 - I don't see how it would... the skin's more sensitive, therefore more prone to irritation from the chemicals in the toothpaste, no? Although, toothpaste IS good for getting rid of hickeys. It stimulates circulation to the area, so the leaked blood (bruise) will be recycled into the blood stream faster.
5t3ff1k4h, there's really no need for you to reply to every comment saying the same exact thing. We understood that you're a smartass after the first time; it just gets annoying so please stop. And by the way, everything that you're saying is wrong. /: Certain types of toothpastes do work for a lot of people. Just because it doesn't work for you doesn't give you the right to be bitter to everybody else. This is FML, not Wikipedia.
Gel toothpaste has a cooling reaction, so it can be used for burns (although if it's left for too long, it will burn you even further.) Toothpaste contains drying components such as alcohol and chalk. The drying components collect moisture and oil from your skin. Therefore drawing it out of your pimple. BUT if you're skin is in any way already dry or sensitive it'll just cause irritation. If your skin is oily try drinking water, washing your face 3 times a day with cold water NOT hot water. Don't apply creams and such to your face. And try making a paste out of honey and ground almonds. Toothpaste is never the solution not even to oily skins.
Toothpaste doesn't work on pimples. It just irritates your skin. YDI
