Brief Answer:
The underlying cause should be identified first

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
Firstly the cause of pigmentation needs to be identified prior to starting treatment.
Pigmentation over neck could be due to sun exposure, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, acanthosis nigricans lichen planus pigmentosus etc
I would appreciate if you could attach an image of the pigmented area.

Also I would like to know if your work involves frequent sun exposure
if you are over weight or have diabetes
if at the area of pigmentation you had any preceding lesions


Answer these queries and upload an image. This would help me in diagnosing the condition and suggesting appropriate management.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
Take care
