Greetings! thanks for your query. The description of black patches could be due to a skin condition known as "Acanthosis nigricans". It can be caused by obesity and few other underlying conditions. Once the underlying condition is treated the black patches improve spontaneously. I would recommend you to see the Dermatologist in the first instance for thorough evaluation of the problem and if necessary some blood tests ( to rule diabetes etc.)

Please avoid self medication as it may cause more harm than good in many situations and causes delay in seeking expert opinion.
