Blackness that develops around neck, in armpits, body folds in people with over weight is actually due to thickening of skin called acanthosis nigricans. Initial step in treatment is to focus on weight reduction which corrects the underlying cause called insulin resistance and inturn also helps for better results with depigmenting creams. Avoid friction like scrubing. Advanced treatment options include chemical peels.
