First of all - I'm very happy to see this subforum opened. My neck acne has ALWAYS been different from the acne on my face and body.

I've had a bunch of cysts on my neck for 6 months I think. I was trying so many things - TCA peels, glycolic acid, mandelic acid.

Recently, no new pimples have surfaced. What did I do?

Well - NOTHING. Stopped putting so many chemicals on it. I moisturized and put vaseline on the individual spots.

To me, this was a shock because it was the total opposite of what I was doing. Sometimes, your skin needs to be left alone in order to fix itself.

That is exactly what worked for me!

I think more people should try this because neck acne hurts.

I didn't use vaseline, I used my cetaphil moisturizer. I'm sure vaseline would work fine, I think moisturizing and not using too many chemicals is key. Also, I stopped using perfume on my neck, it made the acne a lot worse.

took me close to 7 years to figure that one out, then 2 months ago that's exactly what I did - put NOTHING on the back of my neck, just some water in the shower, then moisturizer afterwards to aid healing.

Works like a charm, not more painful severe cysts that stop me turning my head or looking up. no kidding. try it, come back in 2 months and tell us all about it.

Just to be sure,

Im pretty sure using anti acne on the neck area is not a good idea since the skin is more sensible.

Although did you guys use a cleanser or nothing at all ? I thought i would use my shower gel which is softer.

Tell me what you think.

Thank you

Well my neck acne seems to be getting worse since ive used dans regimen, even though it kinda works for my back, and it works good on my face, its lacking on my neck, so what do you recommend i do for the moisturizer? Can you be a little more specific on what you do?

Yes, it seems like good way to do nothing for neck acne instead of squeezing and applying many products on it.

Hey, I never get neck acne or I had never had it before. I do get it on my face but never on my neck. Recently I've got 4 pimples on my neck and they won't go away, I mean there so stubborn!
I can't even pop them, they like stuck there. I did buy a new foundation and it was a darker shade to my natural tone so I started blending it further down my neck then usual. So that could be one thing that caused it but then again it could also be because I've started washing my neck with face wash because my foundation needs to removed. I'm so over them though, I want them gone. I haven't used my foundation in atleast 3 days and there still there and I've been washing, exfoliating, toning and moisturising. Please help!!! I have a special occasion this weekend and I want them to be gone. Should I stop putting foundation on my neck and should I stop washing it with face wash. Just wash it when I have a shower. Is there anything else you guys know that gets rid of them fast???
