1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, Neck and Back

Acne can occur anywhere there are sebaceous glands (oil glands) in the skin.
Web md is a great resource to learn more about acne. Skin hygiene with soap and water followed by benzol peroxide or 2% salicylic acid products are over the counter options. An evaluation by a dermatologist can help develop a long term plan. Resistant acne can also be treated with antibiotics and some laser therapy.
