Q. Several years ago I noticed that gum irritations healed more quickly after I used Listerine. I decided to try it on facial blemishes. If it is applied as soon as a blemish begins, the spot fades quickly without becoming large and offensive.
A. You are the second person who has told us that the Listerine mouthwash can speed blemish healing. We cannot explain why it might work, but it seems like a benign approach.
