why would you put toothpaste on a pimple?

it decreases inflammation and dries it out. but it only works if u use paste instead of gel, and a certain kind of paste too. I like to use the stuff with baking soda in it.

This reminds me of the FML where the OP was a dude's girlfriend, and was making out with him and accidentally poped a pimple on the inside of his mouth. Hey OP, you got a girlfriend?

Why does he deserve it? lol. I don't understand, it's a very common thing some people do, it drys out the area ad kills bacteria, just like any acne medication which utilizes salytic acid.

109, I'm from new jersey and I don't tan, I'm not an orange oompaloompa, I don't have an accent or a "Jersey Accent" and I dont GTL(: dont believe all the stereotypes you hear about us ;)


your only suppose to leave it on for 10-15 mins. Leaving it on all night, like op, makes it go the zit or whatever reduce, but then it leaves a huge dark spot where the toothpaste was.

good to know! I never knew you could use toothpaste on pimples... thought it was only good for minor burns... oh an teeth cleaning obviously haha.
might try it for this weekends party. I love summer :).
unlucky OP. always do your research!

uhm 114 it actually doesn't leave a huge dark spot... I've left it on all night and so have my friends and we have all seen good results. and none of us have the sane skin type.


My friends left it on all night (spent the night), and they all had dark spots. I guess you can only leave it on all night with certain toothpastes. I leave mine on for 15 mins and it turns out fine.

ok I'm just wondering why is everyone getting upset at the people who say "why did you do that", when obviously he or she should have asked a doctor to see if that works, and if he or she did, then I stand corrected

#59 - That's what I was thinking. It's such a weird way to word it.

Like this:
So not only was the toothpaste treatment ineffective, but it also didn't work?

  frozenshake  |  5

yup, it is idiotically worded -____-
and the toothpaste method does work
you leave it on overnight and your pimple shall shrink :D
but if you do it during the day, if you don't keep it on long enough, it can look worse.
and you have to use the right toothpaste -.-
or try an aspirin mask with honey-- once a month only though :3
k, I'm done

you have to use the right kind to dry it out but you also run the risk of it staining the pimple from it absorbing the toothpaste. So while simple cheap white toothpaste is vest, it can also leave a false white head.

That's true. I used to break out a lot around my mouth, and my dermatologist told me that I should always use face wash after brushing my teeth, because toothpaste actually causes most people to break out.
