Skin issue

I noticed this morning an area in front of my neck that feels like velvet. Its not a different colour not red or itchy and there is nothing there like a mole or anything. What could be the issue?

It would be impossible for anyone to guess what it may be.  If it doesn’t disappear in a few weeks or it becomes irritated, inflamed, or itchy, you should probably see your doctor for evaluation/follow up.

Hi,  does it look like this photo, slide #3? (though that one, acanthosis nigricans, is darkened a little and yours is not)

Maybe yours has a similar cause. The main suspect in that darkened one is diabetes. After that, it might be that something else is growing inside and the skin effect is a sign of what's on the inside.
