Acanthosis is a skin condition where some areas of the body such as neck, arm pits, sometimes cheeks or face get darker and or thicker patches sometimes with skin tags.


It is believed to be due to insulin resistance which is associated with increased insulin levels on a long term basis as the body fails to respond to insulin leading to compensatory increase in insulin levels.
