Xerina cream is a keratolytic drug i.e. It peels off the thickened velvety skin in acanthosis. Continue using it. Apply sun block with high SPF number during day. The disease is associated in few cases with underlying insulin resistance &diabetes OR an underlying malignancy usually adenocarcinoma stomach. I hope you doctor got your HbA1c and basic screening tests to rule out malignancy done.
