Hello
Thanks for the photograph.
It is acanthosis nigricans an autoimmune disorder.
Only kojivit won't help you.
I treat such cases with oral chromium tablets and have seen good response in 3 months.
You can try this in consultation with your doctor.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
