Why shoulder blades?  Isn't it funny?  Some of my worst was on my shoulder blades when I was younger.

I had some acne on my shoulders also. When I was 23 I had bad acne on my face and my dermatologist was into very natural remedies. She had me splash my face every morning before my shower with warm water and white vinegar and then get into the shower, and wash with salicylic acid soap. It cleared up my acne in two months and as long as I did it, my face stayed clear until I got into my 30's and I switched to Dove.

12yrs of age for girls, 15yrs for boys - measure them after a growth spurt.

Any younger than that should follow BTD.

White vinegar?  I'd rather do lemon juice.  I'll try the vinegar.

White vinegar..  The reason the skin is so inflamed is because the bacteria change the Ph balance so that they can multiply.  White vinegar changes the Ph balance on the skin back to normal, which is an environment that the bacteria that causes acne, can't survive.
Lemon juice doesn't have the same effect.

But I don't believe the "acne" is caused by bacteria. Otherwise it would have cleared up by taking all those antibiotics that the dr. gave me for it 10 years ago.  No, I think it's caused by Candida and/or liver issues.  It's not a skin thing, it's just being manifest through the skin.  I think.  I did try vinegar this morning.  I'll continue.  Thanks for the tip.

You're welcome. Just give it at least 2 months every day and see if you don't notice an improvement. I figure if acne contains pus, that would indicate an infection..dead white blood cells...bacteria. See if you can find salicylic acid soap. I bought it online. It keeps the cells on your skin from clumping and clogging the pores..my dermatologist told me that people with acne have a skin cell shedding problem..the cells shed abnormally in clumps and block the pore, trapping the bacteria and causing the pimple..if the cells are still clumping, antibiotics won't work. The soap is important also.

You may be right about the sloughing thing, since after I shave I always get ingrown hairs.  A dr once told me to wash my legs with antibacterial soap before and after shaving.  I did that but it never helped.  Incidentally....(back to the topic on GTD being anti-inflammatory)....I rarely get those ingrown hairs anymore.  It's like my body doesn't let everything possible get infected anymore.  (Well, that was an improvement on the BTD and just continued on the GTD.)

Thanks!  We plan on having her blood typed in May.  But I doubt she'll be able to follow either the A or the O BTD completely.  There's just too much wheat, corn and dairy at school, and there's the stigma of following a diet.  Also, most cereals that don't contain wheat are made from corn.  Finally there's the issue that her American Girl "Body Book" and her health teacher both make the claim that acne is not caused by diet, and naturally she'd rather believe them rather than her parents.

But we'll see how she reacts to the ND next month!



My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.
