How many times did the vet say to use it? I would be worried about causing excessive dryness and irritation if used too frequently. Another option would be a cotton pad dampened with colloidal silver, which has anti-bacterial properties and is completely non-stinging and non-drying. You could also put a dab of aloe vera gel (Lily of the Desert brand, which doesn't use sodium benzoate as a preservative) on her chin. Sometimes it's enough to just wash the chin with a warm washcloth after eating. Cats can have trouble cleaning their chins properly and the oily food residue is what causes the acne.
