Neck Acne (Bit On Jawline Too)

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I posted a topic a while ago but haven't had too much luck since.

Can someone identify this type of acne?

It was suggested before possibly shaving related.

I switched razors and finally ordered an electric razor to try in a few days.

I haven't shaved since beginning of last week and my neck was fine until monday. I do want to shave the sides of my face but don't want to while there's spots there.

Here's some pics (looks worse in real life than the pics)

I was off work most of last week and went back on monday, and I wear a fleece which covers my neck which could irritate it, but I don't want to not wear it done up as then people can see my neck, lose/lose situation.

Anyone had something similar? It's only been the past 12 months on and off. Seems to come really badly then go then come back

Hi,

I think switching to an electric razor was a good first step.

I used to get these when I was deficient in vitamin D.

Vitamin D is a necessary hormone.

The lower half of the face, which I broke out a lot in when I was deficient (cheeks, chin, jaw, neck), went away after I got my numbers up.

Yeah I never thought of switching blades. But what I also notice is if I put my blanket up to my neck when shaving I breakout. Shaving breaks me out too.

Im gonna test if shaving with jojoba oil helps. I've been using bp and cetaphil with jojoba oil to stop breakouts everyday. But shaving is still a weakness to my neck.
