Toothpaste Unkind to My Chin

Is this a far-fetched theory? I'm suspecting my toothpaste of causing my chin to break out. This is the first time it has happened to me, although I'd heard people say before that they couldn't use certain toothpastes because they caused pimples. Anyway, I'm currently using Colgate Fresh Confidence with Cooling Crystals (Spicy Fresh) and it just occurred to me that my chin started breaking out since I started using it. The rest of my face is fine. It's really just my chin. None of the other Colgate toothpastes I'd used in the past ever did the same to me, so I'm thinking it's really just this particular product. Can anybody else relate?

Omigosh! It never even ocured to me that toothpase could be the reason I've always got big baddies on my chin. That's the only place I break out. Hmm. I'll try some other kind and get back to you.

Thanks, Nikka. I've just started using a different toothpaste. I'll let you know how that works out too. :)

when i was still using colgate, my chin always had a break out. i changed brand and my chin's better! Christine told me that colgate really causes break outs.

I think I did hear about that from you and Christine. At that time I didn't pay too much attention because I couldn't relate, lol.

it's because of its fluoride content, so if it is giving you breakouts then it means that brand is best for your kids, lol! :) I still use Colgate, just avoid the toothpaste or bubbles from touching my chin.

I switched to another Colgate product, so far so good :) I didn't know fluoride could make you break out!
