brown spots/rash along sides of neck

I am a 47 year old woman, who has taken birth control pills in my past.  I have a brown rash along the sides of my neck that does not cause any discomfort, but looks pitiful. I was told this was caused by the flutuating hormones.  Is there anything that can be done to have my normal pigmentation return to this area?
Thank you.

Hello,

Without examination,it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis,but the various possibilities are acanthosis nigricans,seborrheic keratosis,syringoma,solar lentigo or tinea versicolor.

Diagnosis can only be confirmed after examination feel that you should consult a dermatologist and discuss these possibilities with him.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
