Hi. Greetings. This could be due to acanthosis nigricans. It mostly is associated with hormonal issues like poly cystic ovaries, insulin resistance and obesity. Weight loss would help if the patient is obese. Could send you details on doctors on follow up private chat message. Hope this helps. Warm regards, Dr Govind S Mittal
