Dental Acne?

If you notice redness, bumps or little whiteheads around your mouth, it might not be typical acne. You could be allergic to your toothpaste, whitening product, or any of the compounds used during professional dental care. This is called perioral dermatitis.

To avoid this kind of breakout, you should always wash your face after brushing your teeth, or cleanse as soon as you get home from the dentist. This is the best way to avoid perioral dermatitis, which can erupt around the mouth.

If your breakouts persist, you may want to include both a dermatologist and a dentist in your search for a solution.
