yellow skin or dark patches

A very popular thread that guests read in the archived section is about acanthosis nigracans .

I thought by making the topic available for discussion might be of use to many.

I had that starting up before I was diagnosed.  It looked like dirt.  When I got my glucose under control, it cleared up.  I do have skin tags but some of those actually went away or got smaller as I lost weight.

I was about 12 or 13yrs  old when dark patches appeared on my groin.

I thought it was because my chubby legs rubbed together & that is even  why it felt so soft & velvety.

I never told anyone because it was another fat shaming experience.

 

It was PrincessLinda here on df who put a name to it for me.

Had dark areas [ armpits ] and tags in the vicinity, both went when I strongly reduced weight and blood glucose values. At the time I did not know the cause, but thanks to the passing of time and Google I eventually got a handle on it.
