AN OVERVIEW OF ACANTHOSIS NIGRICANS (AN): WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Acanthosis nigricans is a skin condition that is characterised by darker and thicker skin which usually appears in body folds and creases. It usually affects regions such as the neck, armpits and groin. No matter how vigorously you wash or scrub an AN affected part, it would remain there. The part of the skin affected with Acanthosis nigricans usually has a velvety feeling.
This condition, although harmless and non-contagious, can, however, be a symptom of an emerging health issue that requires urgent medical attention. That is why Clear Skin London is here to treat and offer other treatment options for individuals affected with AN – Acanthosis Nigricans.
Hence, it is advised that you visit our dermatology clinic the moment you begin to observe areas of darker and thicker discolouration on your body or skin.
