Overview

Sometimes the body produces too much sebaceous oil -- the body's natural oil for lubricating hair and skin. When this happens the pores clog with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria, resulting in pimples. Getting rid of pimples, particularly on the neck, takes extra care.

Step 1

Wash your skin twice daily, but no more than that to avoid drying out the skin. Wash your neck in the morning and at night before you go to bed. Use a mild cleanser or an over-the-counter acne medicated face soap and warm water. Rinse your skin thoroughly with warm water to remove residual soap. Splash your neck with cold water to close the pores. Pat dry with a soft clean towel to avoid irritating the skin.

Step 2

Apply a topical acne cream to the affected area daily. Read the ingredients to ensure the product contains benzoyl peroxide, a key ingredient in fighting acne. Follow the manufacturer instructions.

Step 3

Drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated and your system flushed. This can help prevent more acne problems.

Step 4

Avoid wearing scarves and turtlenecks which don't allow air to get to the affected area. Keep your hair pulled away from your neck -- hair contains oils which can transfer to your skin. Keep your bedding clean by washing it at least once a week.

Step 5

Avoid popping pimples, because it leads to scarring. Oils in your fingertips can transfer to your skin making acne worse. It's best to avoid touching the affected skin at all.
