Dark pigmentation on the skin especially involving the neck, the inner thighs and the arm pits may be due to hormonal imbalance. If there are associated weight problems and adrenal problems, then dark skin pigmentations may present. If this has been present for quite some time already, then you may need to have this assessed by an internist. An endocrinology referral may be necessary.
Apply vitamin E cream over the dark areas. Do not rub or scrub vigorously. This may thicken the skin. Mildly exfoliate from time to time.
How old are you?
Do you have any associated conditions like diabetes?
i have had this dark ring on my neck since i was 5 and i am now 23. Its been really hard to deal with and when i was younger i would crub so bad i would hurt my self. Im actually considering lazer surgery for it. i hope that does the trick. I dont know of any other remedies to make it go away. a simple scrub does not help. Some people say that it is dirt. i still have no clue. what would you suggest?

I had this problem long time ago went to see the doctor and he said to use Selsun Blue Shampoo I used it for that summer ( thats when I always get it dirty brown blotches around my neck and shoulders sometime they look like hickies) I put a quarter size on a wet face cloth and scrubed not hard done it every shower and GONE!!!! now my 22 yearold son has it and its fadding away slowly but you can notice the diff.Again its Selson Blue Shampoo you can get it at any drug store. I hope it will help,it did for me.
I think this tips will helps you. Take at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep daily. You can apply cucumber slices over the eyes for 15 minutes. Aloe vera juice is also helpful for removing dark circles. Make a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice and apply it on the affected area.
