Acanthosis nigricans can occur normally in some percentage of Indians. In some it may be a sign of underlying conditions like diabetes, hormonal issues, very rarely even malignancy also. It can be treated, though not very satisfactorily. Addressing underlying problems will be important.

Kindly consult a dermatologist to confirm the cause and for further treatment.
