Is petroleum jelly ok to use on acne prone skin? I have very acne prone skin and break out for anything but I have very flaking skin under my mouth.

A dermatologist is. expert in this area but I do view petroleum jelly as helpful. Consider using Vitamin E oil which can be purchased in the health food store in a little bottle.
