Hello, Kindly post a picture of your condition as there are many skin conditions which lead to dark patches. However from your description it appears that you have a condition called as acanthosis nigricans. The skin appears dark due to increase in thickness of the skin at that area. Consult a skin specialist for detailed skin analysis and specific treatment for your condition. Avoid scrubbing the skin. Hope this helps. Warm regards, Dr Pinanky Jadhav, Eternis Skin & Hair Clinic, Pune
