In brief: No

No. Toothpaste only belongs in the mouth because it can burn your skin.
Use an astringent that has salicylic acid in it.

In brief: Get a real Rx

This is the 21st century.
If topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get prescription-strength treatment from your physician. The medications for all but the most severe cases are inexpensive and safe.
