Hormones and glands effect this area. If you notice acne on your jaw or neck could indicate over active adrenal glands, or hi sugar intake.
Zone #2 & #3
Stress would be the cause of acne in this area around the shoulders.
Acne on this area indicates some sort of digestive problem. Possibly drinking too many cold beverages could also effect this area.
Zone #5 & #6
Acne on this area of the elbows could mean keratosis polaris caused by an over production of dead cells or poor circulation. This can be caused by inefficient use of body vitamins.
Acne in zone 7 around the belly indicates a problem with blood sugar levels.
Zone #8 & #9
Acne on the thighs is probably due to some sort of allergy to soap or lotion.
Zone #10 & #11
Zones 10 and 11 are the most common areas for acne. You may have heard it called bacne. But acne in this area is typically caused by nervous and digestive system malfunction so it is a broad spectrum. See a dermatologist about this kind of acne.
