Around the mouth ??

My daughter is using Tazorac and is on Dorx. antibiotics and her skin is doing fairly well. Everywhere she puts the Taz...her skin stays really clear. BUT, she can't put the Taz around her mouth/side of mouth area cause it's too sensitive. AND that's where she continues to break out !!

Is there anything she might be able to use in that area to prevent breakouts? Also, she break outs along her lips...do you think that could be from using chapstick type stuff? She's like hooked on it.
Is there a "safe" chapstick that won't break her out?
THANKS

Re: Around the mouth ??

its most likley the toothpaste.
i was watching a show and they said some toothpastes trigger acne around the mouth and lips if the toothpast happens to touch there.

Re: Around the mouth ??

You know, I thought of that and checked the ingredients in Colgate Total, which she uses. It has 2 ingredients that are pore clogging, but they are not 1st or 2nd on the list.

Does anyone know of a toothpaste that doesn't have Sodium Lauryl Sulfate....I know I probably spelled that wrong. It seems to be a bad, pore clogging one!
