Thanks for your query.

It is important to know your height and weight.

Do you have blackish discoloration over the underarms too?

If you are overweight, acanthosis nigricans is a good possibility.

The best treatment would be chemical peeling. You will have to consult a dermatologist personally for that. After an evaluation you can set the expectations right before and after the treatment.

A common measure that we advice individuals with such problems is to start using a broad spectrum sunscreen twice daily (E.g SUNCROSS) before going out and at noon. A mild depigmenting cream like Depiwhite once daily is recommended.

Under eye discoloration is very common amongst people with allergies, short of sleep, who are unable to manage stress etc. I recommend Alovera gel twice daily and maintain a good diet and sleep cycle. Take a lot of water, all kinds of fruits and veggies.

Awaiting your response.

Thanks for the reply.

With this information, the possibility of acanthosis nigricans is low.

I would recommend you to see a dermatologist personally and discuss the option of chemical peeling particularly Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels.

Start with the sunscreen and depiwhite as suggested earlier.

You may expect a reasonable improvement in your skin condition with this treatment.

I hope I have answered all your queries. Do accept the answer if you do not have any further queries.
