Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of blackish patches on the neck, armpits and stomach can indicate the following conditions:
Nevi (moles) Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin after healing from wounds and inflammation) Cafe au lait macules (black patches that appear on the skin, usually in people with neurofibromatosis type 1) Atopic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation associated with atopic tendencies which are inherited genetically and also environmental factors) Phototoxic reactions, photoallergic (blackish patches on the skin that appear as a result of direct sun exposure) Hyperkeratosis (excess deposition of the outer skin proteins on the surface of the skin) Folliculitis (hair root infection) Contact dermatitis (skin inflammation due to contact with substances that are irritating, or due to allergies to certain substances that come into contact with the skin) Melanoma (skin cancer originating from skin pigment-producing cells) Skin irritation, for example due to excessive friction, etc. How long have you had these black spots? Has it been more than 2 weeks? Are there any other complaints you experience, for example itching, pain, or something else?
If the blackish patches appear very clear and unusual, you should get it checked directly by a doctor or dermatologist. Simply by direct inspection, doctors are generally able to determine whether your condition is mild, or dangerous. If necessary, the doctor will perform several tests to determine the correct diagnosis, for example a biopsy, allergy test, and so on.
Our advice, you avoid peeling, scratching, or giving careless treatment to the black spots that appear without a direct recommendation from a doctor. Shower diligently, dry yourself well with a clean towel after bathing, and wear clean clothes. When you have a lot of outdoor activities, make it a habit to use sunscreen that contains SPF 30 or more to protect your skin from exposure to direct sunlight. Do not forget to also avoid contact between the skin and other substances that are prone to causing inflammation in the skin.
Hope it helps ..
