I have severe acne. My older brother had severe acne. My younger brother had moderate acne. My aunt and my uncle on my mom's side had severe acne. A cousin on my mom's side has always had moderate acne.

This is all after puberty/teenage years btw. Just wondering if other people have noticed this...

It does run in my family, unfortunately sad.gif Both my mom, dad, brother, aunt, uncle, and cousins had it I guess mine is just genetics. Severe acne doesn't run in my family, though. Thank goodness!! I just have mild to moderate.

I hate it when people can eat any crap they want and still have perfect skin. Grrr! I eat way healthier than all my friends and I'm the only one with bad acne eusa_snooty.gif

My hopes lie on Accutane now eusa_pray.gif

Acne does NOT run in my family. I'm the only one and I hate when people say acne is hereditary. Not always true.

I wasn't implying that acne is always hereditary. One of my best friends has had mild and persistent acne since middle school. The rest of her family has porcelain skin.

But I think some people may have a genetic predisposition to acne ;-)

My mom said she got acne on her forehead when she was younger(her skin is still kinda oily though) and my dad had absolutely no acne(I never asked but I can tell. My mom also says he never did). His brother, my uncle, did have some and my aunt has oily skin and my other aunt gets like 1 pimple once every 2-3 months, so uhh. chea.
Veni, Vidi, Vici.

1 more warning and I'm otta here for good. Just leaving this here as a reminder. ;3

Sorta. As far as I know, I'm the only one in my family who got severe acne on their face.
But my mom has like four different skin diseases, including acne on her bum, but not her face. Damn her.
When my mild acne suddenly got incredibly severe last year, it was by far, the worst time in my entire life. Instead of messing around with accutane, I went right to the holistic approach.

I managed to heal my severe acne within a few months, by diet, changing my attitude, getting exercise, and just living a generally healthy lifestyle. I'm now a nutrition student.

If you need help with healing your acne holistically or want to find out more about my journey, please visit my personal blog.. I can't put the link here, but please check my profile to grab the address! Thanks!
Peace and happiness :)

My mom had mild acne, and my dad didn't have any. My brother, on the other hand, had it quite bad - he had to go on accutane. Luckily, the last 2 years I've had pretty light 'acne,' if you can even call it that. Now that I'm off dairy though, I haven't really had any whiteheads; just closed comedones.
Clear as long as I stick to Paleo - lots of meats, vegetables, healthy fats, and small amounts of fruit. Supplements: CLO/ fish oil, Mg, vit. D3, vit. E.

Yea it does. My dad had severe acne as a kid, my mom had mild. I have moderate to severe. My sisters had mild to moderate. Acne is realted to genes.

Everyone in my family seems to have struggled with acne (mild to moderate) growing up. There was only one severe case (my uncle). They all grew out of it around the age of 25-26, so here's to hoping I will too!!

Acne is not always related to genes. No one in my family has it.

my parents never had acne at all. my sisters breakout every so often but nobody is like me with the cystic acne. my mom always says how she cant figure out why i break out since her or my dad never have. everybody in my entire family has pretty good skin.

My mom had severe acne that was only cleared by retin-a and time. Mine is worse than hers was, and I'm on accutane. Brother has mild acne, and I don't think my father ever had a problem.

So yes, it does, but I sure got the worst of it.
Month One: 40 mg/day Amnesteem.
Month Two: 40 mg/day Amnesteem.
Month Three: 40 mg/day Amnesteem.

Definitely hereditary in my case.

My father never had any skin issues whatsoever, but my mom and I are prone to large cyst-like pimples around the mouth and between the eyebrows. Mostly to the left and right of the chin. It's probably a hormonal thing.

Oh yes it most definitely runs in my family, on my mother's side.. & I curse her everyday for it!! lol, jkjk.
My 3 other siblings also suffer(ed) from it. My oldest sister is 34 & she usually has a few pimples, & she has some scarring (but she didn't even start getting acne until she was in her late 20's). My other sister is 24 & she also keeps at least a couple on her face most of the time. & my brother is 26 & he gets some still occasionally. But both of them had it bad when they were teens.
I've been suffering with it since I was 11, so it's been 9 years.. 9 long years. For the most part it's gotten better, I just usually have a few on my face, in comparison to what it used to be, which was a face full. Now my biggest problem is my scarring, which I'm currently using mederma on. I really don't want to have to deal with this for the rest of my life though.

Yep. My sister has acne (mild-moderate). I used to have acne (moderate). My Dad supposedly had acne (he has some acne scars-mild though). My Mom says she did not have acne though. It figures because her skin is pretty flawless.
