Your neck looks dirty

Acanthosis nigricans is the medical term for a discoloration that almost looks like dirt with a velvety feel, according to Dr. Todd Sontag, DO, Orlando Health Physician Associates’ family medicine specialist.
This rash-like discoloration mostly appears in the armpit or on the back of the neck, and it mostly indicates insulin resistance or diabetes.
DR. Sontag notes that many patients would come to check this rash that they couldn’t get rid of, and that’s when he runs blood tests to see if the blood sugar levels are stable and to ID the problem.

Usually, women don’t have to sprout the chin hairs because they would be only a few, but when they become dark and familiar to the beard of a man, then it is a sign of polycystic ovary syndrome.
When a woman is experiencing a hormonal imbalance, then her period would also be affected, impacting her fertility. So don’t hesitate to take a look at your medical history in order to get your body going in the right direction.
