    Acanthosis Nigricans??!

    brown to black, thick skin mostly in folds area like neck, axilla, groin etc..

    Its a syndrome according to cause..

    Due to many causes... but will concentrate over "Obesity" and "Endocrinopathies" such as insulin-resistant diabetes

    If you saw it
    Its away from "hygienic issue"

    must to consult Doctor as its signs and symptoms... You can help by instructing
    :)

    I believe it's a skin condition related to insulin resistance. Other than that, sorry, I don't really know any more than that.

    Thanks for posting about this skin condition and for the link to youtube. I don't have this condition but I do have a different persistent skin condition that I have been thinking may be caused by a malignancy. I think I'll visit the doctor. my problem is that when I had it 13 years ago the doctors said it was nothing. Then it cleared up immediately after treatment for cancer! It's reappeared last month and I have been suspecting cancer again. Thanks again for your posting. You have prompted me to act!

    Did you ever consider that maybe the OP is not speaking in his mother tongue? I wish I could express myself so well in a second language.

    Thank you Ayman_Matrook for your post.

    I have this. It's a symptom associated with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) as well as insulin-resistance (both of which I have, plus T1 diabetes). There's loads of information about it if you google it. Sadly there's not much you can do about it directly.... well, last time I researched it a few years ago there wasn't any treatment. It's more about managing the diabetes control and hopefully reducing the symptoms that way.


    Not sure if OP was asking for help / advice from others or trying to offer help / info, either way, thanks for the post! :happy:

    The OP was kindly passing on information... :cool:

    Though I don't have this condition, I had to Google it too as well as translate a little Arabic! :p
