Tanning on back

I have much dark tanning on back and abdominal area and day by day I am feeling it is getting increase. I really want to get rid from it as it losses my confidence in wearing clothes with the deep neck. Is it possible to get rid from it?

Hello there. Yes its possible. But it is really tan or something called acanthosis nigricans. Acanthosis nigricans is a condition in which the color around the neck darkens. It could happen due to hormonal disturbances like thyroid problems etc. I would suggest you see a dermatologist in person so that he can examine the area and then run a few tests if he feels it's acanthosis nigricans. Regards
