I get very minor bumps on my neck from shaving. I use the two-blade Trac II razor which has been very gentle on my neck (I recommend it). Nonetheless, I still have a few very small bumps. It's hardly noticable at all, but I'm wondering if I can get rid of the bumps with AHA+ or a Salicylic acid product (maybe the Stridex pads). I use The Regimen on my face and have been clear of acne for five years. But I don't want to use BP on my neck because I don't want to bleach collars, and I don't get much actual acne on my neck. Like I said, just a few minor bumps.


Will adding one of these exfoliating products help my neck stay 100% clear? Or will it add more irritation? I'm very curious to know what you think.

I shaved my chest about a month ago and used my acne.org AHA after and I didn't get a single razor bump - and I usually get  them pretty

severely after shaving anywhere on my body. 


Give it a shot! :)

I would imagine AHA+ would be better. Somewhere on this sight i saw Dan said AHA+ will stop acne from skin irritation like a football helmet chin strap rubbing on your chin- apply aha+ on the area and it will prevent acne from appearing there. So it should be effective with shaving instead of a simple rubbing irritation.
