There are many ways to determine if a person is overweight, but experts believe that a person's body mass index (BMI) is the best way to assess an adult's weight in relation to their height. * A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal. * Adults with a BMI between 25 and 29.9 are considered overweight.

Although most cases of cholinergic urticaria is related to cooling following an increase in core body temperature, cold -induced cholinergic urticaria has been reported although it must be quite rare.

Depends on cause: Hydroquinone based creams are used to help lighten dark spots. What you are describing, however, could be a condition called acanthosis nigricans. This is commonly associated with high Insulin levels and Insulin resistance. I see it frequently in patients who are significantly overweight. If that is what you have, it needs to be addressed by your doctor. ...Read more
