This may seem very odd, but I put acne medication on my face

Customer Question

This may seem very odd, but I put acne medication on my face last night that contained-10%sulfur as active ingredient, and the inactives are Isopropyl Alcohol, Zinc Oxide, Salicylic Acid, Camphor, Magnesium Aluminum Siliate and Iron Oxides.
My dog likes to lick my face and last night he obviously did because he seemed to vomit this white foamy type liquid which I would assume is Bile. He couldn't have injested a lot but the vomiting is my concern.
Is this dangerous for a small 9 pound dog?
Thank You

Hi! My name is***** and I am a small animal veterinarian. I see that your dog licked your face last night after applying ace medication correct? Was the medication rubbed in? How long after licking your face did you vomit and did he only vomit that one time?
