Does anyone here have a food sensitivity/allergy to root vegetables?

I am currently doing the elimination diet and have already tested quite a bit of things.   Included in the things I've tested is sweet potatoes, garlic/garlic powder and carrots.   They all gave me both digestive issues and cystic acne.   They are all root vegetables so it just seems like root vegetables are something I should avoid.   I mean I could test more kinds of them like radishes, turnips and whatnot but I think I'll just decide to avoid every single root vegetable for the next decade or two at least.

i vaguely remember hearing something about certain foods being high in types of vitamins which are bad for acne prone skin. i could be wrong but i think spinach  was meant to high in iodine which is bad for people with acne.

i think there is some good information online if you do a google search.
