Hello,
welcome to HCM
The description you are giving suggests ACANTHOSIS NIGRICANS.
please google for images of acanthosis nigricans and see if they match with your skin condition. If not, you may send me your pics on gaurangkrishna3@g,ail.com, for a better opinion.

Thanks

I got my period after taking the tests. However me and my boyfriend dry humped again this month with 5 layers between us. He said he ejaculated but I couldn t see anything outside of his clothes. I am worried again I am pregannt because ever since last month, I have gotten underarm/breast pain in the middle of my cycle. I also am very tired and I spot. I also have back and neck aches. This has been for two months however every month the spotting only lasts two days and only when I wipe. Could I be pregnant? Is it implanation?
