I would guess O's particularly ones with dodgey livers (but it isn't an absolute answer)
O's extra strong stomach acid tends to mean things get processed into their blood stream more quickly/easily & if the liver isn't as healthy that can mean the body detoxifies through the skin....

I've had body acne as long as I can remember -- particularly on my arms and backs of my shoulders. My face is usually pretty clear, and always has been. Even when I was on a basically vegan diet for several months, my arms didn't clear up; and now on the BTD/GTD, it's not any better (and may even be somewhat worse -- I'm pretending it's the toxins clearing out of my system, though  ).

Type A+, secretor status unknown.

My teenage son has acne on his face, arms, & back. He doesn't eat the best diet. I assume he is an A. He has a lot of the traits. He eats the normal teenage diet - pizza, burgers, sodas, ice cream.... you get the picture. I was just reading that oil of oregano was good for acne. I was thinking about giving him some to try.

That Genoma Derma from NAP is great stuff.
Yeast can look like  chicken skin on the arms.
Need biotin/folic acid more then likely and it takes awhile to clear up.

Lots of my family members are type A.

Me, my DH, both sons, 2 sisters are all type A.  My 3 nieces are type A.  None of my
nieces have or ever had acne.... My sons didn't have acne..neither did/does my DH.

One of my sisters has acne issues and one has great skin.  I had acne issues most of
my life.

So out of 7 type A people, only 2 were acne sufferers.  And me and my sister always
had oily skin and large pores.  The other 5 have naturally smaller pores and drier skin.

I had two aunts with acne....My mother's youngest sister and my father's only sister.

An acne gene?

Mine, according to Dr. D himself, is a staph infection.  Unfortunately it has never responded to antibiotics.  I asked DH if he thought I had MRSA and he said if I had MRSA, I'd be like dying or something.  But it does make me wonder.  Tomato goo helps mine, but I can't seem to totally eliminate the root cause.  Systemic staph won't go away, I guess, by topical application of tomato.

3 of my sons have had it pretty severely.  The 2 with the worst are type 0-(guessing he's a nonnie) and B-, but this one may be a secretor.  The only way I have to know that is by their cavity history.  The third guy is an 0+ probably secretor.   It's been the scourge of our existence, and if I could find a real true cure, it would be something!  Of course, I had a pretty bad case as a kid, and so did my type A father.  We all experienced some degree of scarring.  I have read so much about acne, the paleo diet for it, other diets, supplements, etc.  My latest thinking is it maybe more an explorer thing and candida related.  Like Andrea said-yeast!

well even with very few spots as a teen
I have had acne.... lately this august/september- but under my arms
I had them at the same times as I had fungus and I am 1000% sure it was related to sugar/grains I ate too much of this summer.
I have often wondered if my daughters almost paleo diet is the reason she has so few spots- cause I can see everytime she have had a coke or some bread

Never any acne here, but my sister who is also a B-neg has had it on her back for years, since she was a teen and still has it.

I had acne in high school and into college, did not notice it in my brother (both of us Type A). More pronounced when got into college (and began drinking soda).

Acupuncturist remarked that my acne was caused by "excessive heat" in my body, escaping out thru my face. And that is part of what caused my depression bouts.

I just read something interesting today.  Both impetigo (which I had repeatedly as a
child) and Scarlet Fever (which I had at age 10) are both staph infections..

And what I thought was cystic acne as an adult could have also been a re-occurrence
of a skin staph infection.

Ribbit, could your staph infection be in the "impetigo" family?  http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/impetigo/DS00464/DSECTION=symptoms

My O hubby and I rarely have problems with acne...we both get greasy foreheads with a few zits when we eat way too much sugar (for him, it's a soda habit, that he's finally overcome, for the most part.)  He had some acne as a teenager, but I've never had it.

My A son has an occasional zit.  My A mother has finally gotten rid of acne, now that she's finished with menopause.  Whew!  Getting older has it's advantages, apparently  

My B son has lots of zits, even on his chest and back, but then, he lives off corn and chicken

We've had this thread going on before....  it's so so interesting to me!

I had  bad acne all my life... especially when I was a vegetarian and even vegan.  In fact, that's why I started the BTD to begin with..  I thought I  at very very healthy things and I could never understand why my skin was so bad....  so someone  introduced me to the BTD.....  and about the same time I also read Dr. Perricone's book on acne.... if you read this  it explains that acne is a form of inflammation... and the cause is  SUGAR or things that convert to sugar... and fat... combination!  

Many of you know I have longed to  do an all raw diet... and have done so off and on, but  all the fruit / oil/ nut     combinations send my skin into  complete  breakouts!!!    and I'm  almost  50!   Even vegetables that get very high on the glycemic  load when they are cooked ( like butternut squash or parsnips)   and  then oils or butter with them...  basic rule.. you just can't eat the high glycemic  foods with fats.... also, DRIED fruit is even worse... there was a period when I was eating salads with dried cranberries and  olive oil and walnuts.... I got  terrible breakouts!!!  so the dried fruits had to go..  

so, when I don't eat sugar ( fruit)  or breads or pasta or crackers.. basically anything with wheat... no acne.. in fact my skin is almost  such  that you can't see the pores!  

so even now, on the SWAMI or GTD... I eat very  little of the fruits and in small  portions...

I can't TELL you how happy I am to have discovered this..... and it  works for everyone I know.....  Just give it a try.....

so now I eat a ton of good quality protein, lots of green veggies...  and very very few things that raise  the glycemic load..... and voila!!  perfect skin....
and this works for my  18 year old son and 22 year old daughter... wish someone had taught me all of this when I was young so I wouldn't have suffered so with my skin.....

My A-nonnie DH suffered terribly until he was 25 and was taken off his daily pint of milk. No acne since.

O-nonnie...bad skin problems...big tomoatoes...especially on face and shoulders and top back...among other places, but those were the most common.  BTD helped fix most of it and GTD is helping even more.  I still have lots of under the skin (hard little nubbies) that are still fighting their way out.   Especially on forehead and down from there along jawline.

Type O brother has skin issues also.  Born with an allergic reaction to wheat...still eats it.   Not a BTD'er...yet.

Type B brother...not many skin issues at all.  Another not a BTD'er yet, but has a new lady friend who is an O and does BTD somewhat.  

Daughters an O and an A have some skin issues, but not like I did...at least, not yet.    Hubby an A who eats a ton of sugar and skin does not have detoxing issues like mentioned, but his skin is very dry and older looking.

I had terrible acne as a teenager, that would flare up, off and on depending on my cycle.  The teenage acne was on my back, shoulders, chest and T on face, never on my cheeks!!

The adult acne only came during PMS time and when I finally got on the right dose of progesterone, it disappeared.  That acne was on my jaw line in my hair line (testosterone anyone?

My A dad had it until the day he died, mostly on his back.  My O mom never had it, my Oldest O son had it really bad.  Went to see my endo and found out his adrenals were really low, once his adrenals were supplemented and he stopped drinking pop, Voila! nice skin. (Every time he gets a break out, I pleasantly ask if he has had a pop lately)

13 year old has no signs yet but time will tell.

the thread's a little old now but i figured i shouldn't open another thread.

I'm still suffering from blind acne whenever i have some foods that i'm allergic to.

Would like to know what classifies as 'anti-inflammatory' foods which i can consider to help heal the acne.

Any help will be great!

I get cystic acne. It's totally related to my gut health, my hormones, and/or whether I'm losing weight or not. For whatever reason, when I lose a lot of weight quickly (which I have been doing recently due to stress, ugh), I break out.

I had been doing pretty well for a long stretch of no breakouts. But man, the last month or so, it's been awful. I get it on my forehead (supposedly the liver) and my chin (supposedly hormonal).

I know it's an explorer thing, big time.

My husband both children (all Type A) all had acne in their teens.
I'm an A, but did not.
My accupuncturist when treating my daughter said some people detox up (acne) and others detox down....

my acne appears most while i'm detoxing, like now. cystic nodules appear between my nose and lips and chin, occasionally between my brows as well indicating allergy

I now get the occasional very painful big cyst, always in my chin & always directly related to hormones.  I had perfect skin all my life up until the last few years... maybe peri-menopausal so i am trying evening primrose & B6 capsules.  I hope this works, they are so painful & look terrible!

My wife had no acne, while her sister did during adolescence. Both type O. The amount of sugar consumed was the only significant difference in their diet. Sister had a real sweet-tooth.
