Does Toothpaste Get Rid Of Scars
Last week I put toothpaste in my unibrow area to get rid of plentiful bumps, woke up the next day with a huge burn, its healing but don't want a scar?
Most toothpastes...: Most, if not all, toothpaste have abrasives that can keep stain off. The problem: once stain has built up, only mechanical removal by a dental office is the safest and predictable way to remove stubborn stains. Good luck!
NO: Do not use toothpaste on your face. It is more irritating than helpful. There are chemicals in toothpaste that can burn your skin and cause redness. Keep the toothpaste for your teeth.See 1 more doctor answer
Advanced: If you can see cavities, they are too big to be helped by toothpaste that may help remineralize small enamel defects no larger than the head of a pin. You probably need professional care rather than the promise of an otc solution that will never be fulfilled. Please call your family dentist for an appointment.See 5 more doctor answers
Stop.: Toothpaste is not intended for facial application. Wash your face with a mild facial soap; if it fails to resolve after a few days, see your dermatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes, drys it out ;..: Toothpaste and most other neutral ph. "clean" drying agents can "treat" the symptoms of acne pimples just like many otc acne treatments. Also, it is possible that the antibacterial agent triclosan found only in colgate total may have an additional minor therapeutic value as well.See 1 more doctor answer
No: No toothpaste will get rid of bleeding gums. Bleeding gums indicate that you have periodontal disease. This needs to be evaluated by your dentist to determine whether it is in the beginning stages, or more advanced. You may need just a deep cleaning, or you may need more thorough periodontal treatment.See 2 more doctor answers
Toothpaste will help: Toothpaste will help make them smaller but I do not think they will be gone just from toothpaste in one application. It is possible but toothpaste acts by drying out the pimple thus making it smaller.See 3 more doctor answers
Bad breath remedy: The first thing you need to do is have a comprehensive exam and xrays completed by your dentist. This is to rule out or treat decay and gum disease which is typically the source of bad breath. At that time your dentist/hygienist can make many recommendations on ways to treat bad breath.See 4 more doctor answers
Since I had the pimple I've been using toothpaste to get rid of it, could that have been the cause of the lump?
Toothpaste for?: Toothpaste is not intended to be used to "get rid of pimples". There are lot's of other products on the market that will probably work much better. Don't rely on what you read on the internet for alternative methods of treatment. If acne is a problem consult with MD. Can't diagnose cause of lump nor what lump is over the internet.
