Hey David. It is us. Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan. Are you reachable?

Finding a doc here: To find a specific doctor here, you can look at his profile page. He may have a Concierge Practice as well, but you will be charged to message him through that system. His profile might give his location and a even an office phone number or a link to his practice. Doctors participate in this forum, whenever they have time, and for some, that is not very often. Hope you reach him!

Hello! I'm Kathleen and I have dark underarms. My sisters and mother also have this problem. What do you think is the problem?

Acanthosis: Darkened, thickened skin in the arm pits, back of the neck and other regions can be from Acanthosis. Acanthosis is a sign that your body is struggling to keep blood sugar levels normal. If you are overweight, pre diabetic or have polycystic ovaries that would support the diagnosis. Your primary doctor or an online consultation could sort this out.
