Thanks for writing to us.
From the description provided I could think of two possibilities only acanthosis nigricans or may be fungal infection. An appropriate diagnosis can only be made after seeing the lesion, for the same I would advise that you consult a dermatologist nearby.
Hope this helped.
Take care
