Acne advice from those with braces?

Recommended Posts

Okay, here's my dilemma. It's kind of strange, but any advice would be helpful.. I see my orthodontist about once every month and coincidentially my acne is all along my top lip and chin. It's gotten better but my skin's still extremely dry. Well, so, my ortho tends to finger my skin a lot (pulling my lips back, etc) and everytime I leave that place my skin is red, irritated and since I tend to get inflamed whiteheads his touching my skin with latex gloves makes it all the much worse.. :cry:

Any ideas? I've thought about just telling him what's happening but how's he supposed to get his job done.. ?

why not bring him a different pair of gloves? they must have something out there... those plastic ones might work, but i guess it depends on what kind of work he's doing, they might get in the way. just tell him your dillema, i'm sure he'll understand. good luck!
