can making out cause breakouts?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, i recently started dating someone and i have relatively mild acne, but i noticed when i make out after a couple days i get acne around the mouth, nothing extreme like 3,4, or 5. can you get acne from kissing, you know from saliva or even the chapstick someone's wearing or something? or is it not possible.

oh and it could possibly be irritation from his beard right? i mean if he doesn't have a close shave it can irritate your skin b/c sometimes i get dry spots in the corner of my mouth that i have to put A and D ointment on after a hard core makeout session b/c it gets irritated and peels for a couple days afterward.

yes, as far as im concerned it can. and ya, in the winter when my bf was using lip balms a lot,i found they caused me to break out cuz of all the oils and what not. oh well, i'd say it's still worth it lol
