Does weight gain have anything to do with the darkening of the neck?
(20 May 2009)

The darkening of the neck is a typical symptom that is directly connected with the severe ailment of diabetes. As a matter of fact, one of the first symptoms of diabetes is the darkening of the neck. The first thing you should do since you have also mentioned weight gain is to get your blood sugar checked. This is because developing high blood sugar is typically also a symptom of diabetes. You need to determine that you are not in the danger zone as far as this is concerned at least. Once you have checked out and eliminated the possibility of having developed high blood sugar, you can move on to other things. Try using a wash cloth to scrub your neck on a daily basis. This will help to remove the darkening of the skin color if it is simply a case of prolonged neglect of cleaning the skin. This too is not uncommon, as we generally tend to neglect this particular area when it comes to a good and thorough scrub and clean process. If this does not help, then it is possible that due to the weight gain, you are also perspiring too much around the area of your neck. Should this be the case, you may also find your skin darkening due to excessive accumulation of sweat. Keep in mind that since this procedure is a gradually developing one, it will also take a long time to go away. In this case, exfoliation is the best way to deal with this situation. To start with you should exfoliate your skin at least thrice a week, and more if possible. This alone will help to normalize the color of your skin.

You can also take half a tomato and add a few drops of lime juice to it. This can be used to scrub out the neck area thoroughly. It will serve as a natural bleaching agent and will help to lighten the skin color. This can also be done daily without the fear of side effects. Another simple and preventive measure is to always apply a thick layer of sun screen lotion to your neck. This will also help by not allowing your neck to darken any further.

In any event, you should try to shed some weight. This will always help with maintaining your general good health and will keep you free of such embarrassing incidents in any case.
