Hi Mala Dirt can not remain on surface of skin for years with regular cleansing. From your description it seems either a case of macular amyloidosis or acanthosis nigricans. Picture was needed to comment further. Macular amyloidosis occurs due to repeated rubbing or friction which you seems to be doing considering it as dirt. Acanthosis is thickening of skin which appears dark mostly on neck due to weight gain. I would advise you to consult a qualified dermatologist to diagnose it and both are treatable conditions. Stop rubbing or using loofah at bathing which may worsen the condition. hope this helps. Regards Dr Vijay Adhe, Eternis Skin & Hair Clinic, Pune. www.eternisclinic.com
