Address oil overproduction

Neck acne is usually caused by excess oil, to treat this, you can extend your treatment to the neck area using products such as benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or sulfur. All these ingredients have anti-inflammatory properties which help prevent comedonal acne and they can also get rid of acne-causing bacteria.

Wash your clothes

The neck often comes in contact with clothes and the friction can make you sweat more.
