Exfoliating is probably a good idea. (but gently - the skin of the neck is often more sensative than the face!) I get neck acne, too. You can also treat the area with BP just like you can your face.

Thanks, BP dont work for me for some reason since I had acne it never worked, my main medicine is Differin (Adapalene) that cleared my face up, but can you tell me how long would it take to clear up the neck

Thanks

I couldn't tell you how long, especially if you're not using BP. I use BP and am on no medications for acne. If Differin is prescription, you could hop into our prescription forum and post the question.

Most clearing up of acne takes at least a week to start seeing results (no matter what you use) and three weeks to a month (sometimes longer) to be fully clear. Areas such as the neck, chest, and back also tend to scar and get hyperpigmentation easier (red marks), so that can take some time to clear.
