Hi greetings. Yes, people are partly correct that this is because of your weight. You mostly have acanthosis nigricans and I could confirm if you could send snaps on private follow up chat. This is a feature of hormonal imbalances and insulin resistance that occurs in association with increased weight. Please take up a strict yet nutritious diet and active fitness measures to lose weight. You could apply a topical retinoid in consultation with a dermatologist at night . warm regards.
