Overview

Acanthosis Nigricans is prevalent among both men and women. It develops in neck, armpits, and groin. Only the trained eyes of a dermatologist will be able to detect this skin disease. Several acanthosis nigricans treatment avenues are open for patients.

Acanthosis Nigricans Symptoms

Discoloration – Skin discoloration tops the list of acanthosis nigricans symptoms. Patients see significant skin darkening.

Thickness – With time, the affected skin becomes thick. As it becomes thicker, the dark patch also increases.

Foul smell – Some patients also complain of a bad smell. The affected part emits a vulgar scent.

Itching – If the condition intensifies, then the skin will start to itch.

Acanthosis Nigricans Causes

Hormonal imbalance – A dermatologist will highlight that people with hormonal imbalance will tend to suffer from this condition.

Insulin intolerance – Some people suffer from insulin resistance. It is one of the probable causes of this skin disorder.

Medicine side-effects – Medicinal side-effects is another potential cause.

Diagnosing Acanthosis Nigricans

Other Disorders and Acanthosis Nigricans

This skin disorder will not lead to your death. But it will reduce the beauty of your skin. Women and young girls often suffer from low self-esteem. Some even develop depression. If the skin itches too much, then it can pave the path for other skin infections.
