My barber always shave it with a razor. I get a hair cut once every two weeks.

I dont feel anything, it doesnt hurt at all am not sure if i am prone to acne at all.

Those bumps been there since last year probably. I just never paid them any mind.

Do they look like firm, dome-shaped, bumps that are 2-4 mm in diameter?
Do you have larger lesions that felt painful?
Have you noticed that bumps appeared and enlarged as the disease progressed?
Did some bumps fuse together and formed hard plaque?
Have you experienced some oozing?

Bumps on neck
MandMs
You seem to know what the bumps are but you had not named them. In your opinion what do you believe the bumps are on the back of his neck? Not a diagnosis of course.

Nasty bumps across my hair line on the back of my neck
I have the same issue with these nasty bumps on my neck. I have tried almost everything across the counter products. These pumps are common hair issues with curing hiring under the skin, I believe or so I am told by all the doctors and specalists that has tried to support/take my money.

If and when someone call help me and other with this nasty issue please give us the support we need.

Thank you,
Dr. J

Also, I've been told that, A Hot Wet Towel will help soften the bumps and allow the hair to come through. don't scratch them. When I shower I use an Axe scrubber, I soak my neck under Hot water for 10-15 min then I scrub my neck. I usually don't get them until I get a hair-cut. If you have this don't Shave You Neck! Don't even cut it to short either. Use the hot towel daily. There in-grown hairs... I know this because I've had sebaceous cyst from them which had to be surgically removed. Again tell me how to post pictures plz.

Look it up... "sebaceous cyst"

Bumps on neck
My husband just went to the Doctor yesterday. The doctor noticed the bumps on the back of his neck and gave him a prescription for a lotion with chemo in it to put on his neck. He was told they were precancerous bumps. When he goes to the barber, the barber always shaves them. Sometimes they bleed and other times they don't. So anyone with bumps on the back of the neck should have a specialist check them out. My husband is also a redhead and prone to sunburns. He always uses the highest sunscreen you can buy.

re spots
soak the back of the neck in hot water then dry off with a clean towel apply some germolene this has an antiseptic and a local anaesetic and can numb pain if its sore the thing is do not start trying to squeeze them nothing will come out of it only a bit of blood and will make it worse and spread the infection you need to apply the germolene regularly preferably 2-3 times a day and leave them alone very important they will then go away but i must stress do not pick at them
