If you notice that your neck tends to break out in spots after a rigorous workout or doing manual work outdoors, then you may have sweat spots on neck. The spots may also appear on other parts of the body that have a lot of sweat glands and that are exposed such as the face, chest, and hands.
The spots tend to be numerous, small ones that are surrounded by skin that has turned red. They may resemble small blisters and they may come with other symptoms such as itchiness, and an irritating prickly or stinging sensation.
Apart from high temperatures, sweat is a big factor. Sweat contributes to the problem when it doesn't come out of the sweat glands, go into the sweat ducts and out of the body through the skin pores. When the sweat remains trapped in the pores, it mixes with sebum, the natural oil that the skin secretes and with bacteria. This grime clogs the pores and that is how problems start. The pores get inflamed and push upwards and outlets and appear on the skin as spots.
Sweat spots on neck are typically self-limiting meaning that they disappear by themselves without any treatment. However, those who do manual work daily or quite often and those work out often may not see the sores go away without intervention because they will keep indulging in activities that make them sweat a lot.
For this reason, other measures like taking plenty of water to stay hydrated, avoiding the sun and high temperatures and taking cool showers to keep the skin cool will not give long-term relief. Using calamine and low-strength hydrocortisone cream will also soothe skin that the sores have become inflamed or irritated.

You may even have become exasperated enough to consider cutting down on your workout sessions to see if the spots will disappear.
