This is Poornima. I have 30 years old. I am having acanthosis nigricans mixed black and white racial background had acanthosis nigricans on my neck when I was overweight. When I lost weight, it went away. I think it is a sign of poor diet and lack of exercise. I didn’t change my level of exercise but I did lose a lot of weight and no longer has that dark rash on my neck. I never put any lotions or any medication on it either. Is there any solution for it. Please tell me doctor.
