In brief: Vaseline

Babies have "bull necks", and wetness and formula love to get into the creases and cause irritation.
Yeast may even move in, making more fun for everyone. A good antifungal like lotrimin (clotrimazole) kills the yeast, an anti inflammatory such as Hydrocortisone helps the raw irritated skin, and a barrier cream such as vaseline protects the skin from future irritation and allows it to heal.

In brief: Air dry

Air drying the skin will clear most of these rashes up.
If they don't dry up with that, try vaseline to keep the skin soft and as a barrier to keep sweat and milk out. If the rash still does not clear up, see your doctor, this could be an infection and need specific antibiotics.

In brief: Keep clean and dry

The neck area can get moist.
Rashes in moist areas can have yeast, so a doctor should see the rash to decide whether or not anti-yeast cream or powder is needed. If a neck stays clean and dry, there is less chance of a rash developing.
