    I have the same thing, the sad thing is, you cant get rid of it and its unpredictable. I use aveeno or any gentile lotions not like the bars of soap but have oatmeal or natural ingredients. Scrub you neck with a wash cloth and rinse. If you havent notice there are lines in the area which are very easy to catch dirt. Other than that nothing can really help it.

    Forget anything you have ever been told about Diabetes.

    And get this - it has nothing to do with insulin, exercise, diet or anything else you've heard in the past. It's all based on latest breakthrough research that Big Pharma is going Stir Crazy to hide from you.

    Acanthosis nigricans. About 10% of people have some form of it. It won't get worse, but it has no cure.

    PS: Yes, it may be a symptom of diabetes and a few other things (like Adison's disease), but it can also be genetic.
