Developing horrible acne on jawline/neck

Hi. I'm starting to develop horrible acne under my jawline and neck. I have very mild acne on my face but my jawline/neck is horrible with acne right now. What can I do for this? I've tried putting benzoil peroxide on it but that didn't help much. I'm currently putting Differin on it right now.

Re: Developing horrible acne on jawline/neck

The chin and jawline are the most vulnerable places that your hands touch. Your hands a full of bacteria, so do not touch your face! If you mess up, put saliva on your preferably clean finger and go over any area that seems itchy or you think you touched. I do this when I feel an itchy area that a zit may pop up on and this seems to take it away after a while. Saliva is antibacterial (this spot treatment tip from Diane Irons). And dont pick, which this area is the best target for picking. Sometimes people do it without thinking. At night (or whenever), put honey around the area and leave it for at least half an hour. this will help draw out the bacteria.
