I burnt my skin from toothpaste, what to do?

I burnt my skin from toothpaste, what to do?

Off-label use: There is inherent risk in using any medicine, prescription or OTC, for uses other than those listed in the instructions. Toothpaste is designed to be used inside the mouth, not on facial skin. It's not designed to be used to treat acne, although many people think it will cure facial blemishes. Inside the mouth, you only need a pea-sized portion on your toothbrush. Please see your physician.

Does toothpaste burn a hickey?

Does toothpaste burn a hickey?

Probably not,: Toothpaste will not burn a hickey. To be used comfortably in the mouth, toothpaste must have a ph similar to the oral environment or it will produce a burning sensation! when your friend gave you the hickey did the ph of his/her mouth produce a burning sensation on your neck or just in your heart?!

I smoke menthol and after I'm done, soda and toothpaste burn. Why is that?

Burning tongue: It's not just the menthol that increases the sensitivity of the oral environment. The tars and other chemicals are irritants as well. It could also be that there is an ulcerated area related to smoking. If you haven't seen a dentist and had an oral cancer exam within the past year, please do so soon.

I put toothpaste on a couple of my pimples and it feels like it's burning, is this normal?

I put toothpaste on a couple of my pimples and it feels like it's burning, is this normal?

No. No quick healing: Actually, putting toothpaste on a pimple isn't normal. Not sure what old wives' tale led to that. Toothpaste is primarily an abrasive silica slurry with a surfactant (sls) to create suds and Fluoride to create acid-resistant mineral substrate. Sls has allergy potential and can cause burning sensation. Try soap and warm water and/or benzoyl peroxide next time. Better yet, talk to your doctor.
