Trivia & myth busters
Dark patches behind the neck is dirt and it will go with scrubbing.
The dark patch behind the neck is not dirt, allergy to a chain, or caused due to sweat.
Using a scrub is not going to help in reducing these dark patches.
Bleaching in the parlour is also not going to help get rid of these dark patches.
Since the underlying cause is not topical (present on skin), acanthosis nigricans/dark patches on the body folds, cannot be treated with any topical creams/solution/ointment/lotion/scrubs.
As these dark patches are present in the folds of the body like behind the neck and underarms so not many are bothered about it. But this is not just a skin condition, it has a systemic cause.
Consult a dermatologist as soon as you spot these changes on your skin.
The underlying reasons for this condition may be – insulin resistance, polycystic ovary syndrome (i.e irregular menstrual cycle), obesity.
Having acanthosis nigricans does not necessarily indicate that the person is diabetic. A dermatologist can diagnose the underlying cause.
Self-medication/home remedies are not going to fix the problem.
