Is it my acne or my bad posture that's causing severe neck pain?

In brief: Maybe posture
Acne does not cause neck pain.
Keeping the neck in an awkward position or in one position a long time may lead to neck discomfort. Stretching and strengthening the neck muscles may help.

Acne shouldn't be causing neck pain - it would be more of a superficial skin pain.

In brief: Probably posture
Acne may cause localized pain, but usually not neck pain.
Posture issues can definitely contribute to neck pain.When a person slouches forward, as in someone with poor posture, the neck has to go into a more extended position to keep the head looking forward, and this can definitely increase neck pain. Thank you for the question.
