Hi You seem to be having acanthosis nigricans. it is common to see this dark velvety pigmentation over the neck, underarms areas. this condition may run in families or may be due to obesity. Please exercise regularly and avoid junk food. please contact a dermatologist who can prescribe oral vitamins and exfoliation creams as well. treatments such as chemical peels laser or dermabrasion help lighten the pigmentation
