whoa, I never knew toothpaste reacted as a retarder toward acne.

That's incredibly interesting. Rolling Eyes I doubt I've ever thought about using toothpaste for my acne. I know that clearly, any benzoyl peroxide products clear acne fairly well; although it may vary from person to person and I know I'm getting the impression, "well you're just saying that because you know it works best for you"...actually, I have hereditary acne which is the genes of acne was given to me by my mother's side. Having nearly impossible actions to remove acne over the years, my face has almost cleared up entirely...sure I get one or two new pimples. Now my chest is another story.
One thing to mention, for those of the women (and men) who love to eat chocolate...it's known that eating chocolate isnt a habit that increases acne during outbreaks. It's rather psychological manner thinking chocolate would start another series of outbreaks with chocolate and other relative foods.

here are some things to prevent outbreaks...
hygiene
diet
certain food decisions
medications [be wary, may vary]
stress
harsh lifestyles
shaving & improper shaving [proper techniques of shaving]
cosmetics [ladies, be aware that the stuff you put on your face causes havoc for your facial skin]
excercise [great way to prevent acne, although be cautious of sweat]
hormones

some ideas of treatment...
anything containing benzoyl peroxide [of course]
antibiotics
tretinoin
isotrentinoin
contraceptive pills
salicylic acid
adapalene
laser treatment
blue light therapy
herbel remedies

I actually looked it up to make sure...
it really does work! I tried it by putting some on acouple of pimples last night and this morning they were barely noticable. except the fluoride does dry it out quite a bit. I'm satisfied. Very Happy

for those who do not believe that toothpaste is a house remedy that could be used to heal acne or want an article as reference...

Ben. Per. does help, it is like taking an aspirin for a headache though, what ever was causing the headache is still there but the symptoms are better. If you can resolve the root cause you will likely be happier and healthier.

Good luck and God bless!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Avoid soap or towel on face. Multivitamins and zinc supplements are usually prescribed by general practitioners. Topical clindamycin is helpful in its prevention.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
