hyperpigmentation in antecubital fossa(Acanthosis Nigricans)

Hi
I am 27 years old married female. I have severe black color hyperpigmentation in many parts of my body mainly in my armpits, knee joint, between the thighs and most importantly in antecubital fossa ( means the area from where blood sample is collected).
I had such hyperpigmentation since I was 13 or 14 years old. I was very very obese during those days.
Since I was young I didn't consult with any doctor during those days.
From the age of 13 till the age of 23 I was very very obese.
After my marriage at the age of 24 I reduced little weight.
I had irregular periods problem even before marriage for which doctor had suggested me to reduce lot of weight.
After marriage I again gained a little weight and I consulted a gyneochologist as I again started having irregular periods again after marriage in the age of 25.
After ultrasound report I was detected with polycystic ovaries and doctor prescribed me 3 months YASMIN birth control pills to reduce it and also told me to reduce weight. Also I was diagnosed with HYPOTHYROID and taking regular eltroxin 75 mg medicine for the same.
Now my weight is 65kg and height is 5.2

I had even gone to dermotologist last year for this black hyperpigmentation. She prescribed me with a Alokem gel depigmentation gel but it was not at all in use. She told this disease is called Acanthosis Nigricans and since it was there from childhood, it will take years for me to decolor and become normal color.

I find no lightening of my skin in the front elbow even after applying fairness creams, alokem gel, depigmentation creams and also I regularly scrub my skin there which has caused the skin to peel instead of decoloring :(

Please please please suggest me with some homeopathy medicines as this black pigmentation in my hands causes huge depression and also I am not able to wear half sleeve dresses and give blood test.

Do you suffer from any pain before, during or after your periods?

Generally speaking, what are the reasons on which you have disagreements with your hubby? Do you think its mostly you who starts the quarrel or do something to instigate him?

Negative traits
1. Get upset easily
2. Lack of patience
3. Dnt know how to react when angry.

Me and my hubby have disagreements because he is totally different from me. Its like he had very poor food habbits and also he is very lazy so when I usually tell him bad about his food habbits and laziness he gets angry and dats where the disagreement occur.

Can you please tell me whats the relationship between my Skin problem and my relationship with my husband.

Could you please tell me which medicine should I take to reduce my skin color in my front elbow and cure the acanthosis nigricans ?

4. Get upset very easily.

I dnt have generally any pain before or after my periods. Juat once in a while light cramps would be there.

I have disagreement with my husband because we are totally opposite in views and also the way we were bought up
He is the only son of his parents and is very pampered. He only likes to do things according to his wish even if he is wrong.He doesnt listen to his parents even.So when I try to advice him or tell him that he is wrong he gets very angry and thinks I am controlling him. Infact his food habbits are very very bad he doesnt eat whatever is made at home. Special food needs to be nade for him every week... That is what irritates me as I was bought up in a disciplined way and I used to do wahtever my parents said but my hubby is opposite ultimately leading disagreementa but still we would compromise and love each other :)

May I know whats the reason you are asking abt ny relationship with ny hubby ?

Could u please suggest me some medicine for my dark skin in my abtecubutal fossa as it causes me more depression.
 
homeo_gg 7 years ago
Your earlier answers didn't lead me anywhere so I picked up this one from your answers to get a hang of your personality.

I guess you could be an Arsenicum personality.

Try one dose every fortnight in 1M potency of ARSENICUM ALBUM.

Share notes after three doses.
 
rishimba 7 years ago
Okay will try it. But is my mental personality related to my skin problem???

:)
 
homeo_gg 7 years ago
No, but homeopaths need to erect a totality for selecting a remedy. Mentals are a big part of the totality.
 
rishimba 7 years ago
I have tried the dose of ARSENICUM ALBUM every fortnight for the past 3 months but it is of no use.
Please let me know some other homeo to reduce the dark skin... It is still vey very dark in my INNER ELBOW that I cannot wear half sleeve dresses also...
