Hi Doctor,

This is Mikku.  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 treatment to this Problem?

Thanking You,
