You probably have acanthosis nigricans. This is usually associated with obesity and insulin resistance. Also such pigmentation may worsen with friction. You need to lose weight if you are over weight, also need to get a thyroid profile done. Please see a dermatologist so that necessary tests can be done then medication can be advised. Take care.
