Whitehead Breakout Around Chin/mouth?

5 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

So on Wednesday, what seemed like a matter of 4-6 hours, my chin broke out with a cluster of whiteheads. I wouldn't even really judge it as my normal acne that I used to have a few years back. There weren't any red lumps really around my whiteheads, like I said they are more of just a cluster of tiny whiteheads gathered around my chin.

The day before I went to the dentists for a deep cleaning and fillings (I haven't been to the dentist in like 10 years..gross..) and they used this fluoride thing on my teeth after everything. Could this be the cause of my acne?

Also, the area feels a little irritated/dry, it could be from the dry weather?

I'll post up some pictures. Notice how the whiteheads are gathered around the chin, (oh I also found three white heads on my upper left side of my mouth as well..) and my skin looks a little off compared to the rest of my face?

flouride could be the culprit, not much you can do now....just keep spot treating, and they are so small they will leave no trace

If you haven't experienced this issue before, I'd instantly say that the dentist's fluoride is the culprit! If you don't mess with the spots too much, I'd imagine they'll go away within a few days.

So I have a question or two for the people who say that it is the fluoride. First, is it possible to get the same type of reaction with toothpaste or simply taking a shower? If they know that fluoride is causing these types of skin problems in people why is there nothing being done about it? I always felt that it may play a role in certain areas that I break out in, so how does one avoid this substance if its in the water supply and many other places as well?

What probably happened was some of the stuff dribbled on your chin dryed up and caused the breakout. Use some bp and monitor it. Notice if bp is reducing the size.
