Dark Skin on Neck

The skin around my neck is very dark. I consulted a doctor and he told me it's acanthosis nigrician. He gave me some medicine and tube but it didn't work much. Also my sugar level and thyroid conditions are normal. However I am a bit overweight these days. (5'11" height and 85kgs). Could you tell me the possible reason for this and also how to get rid of the issue?
