How do you get rid of ak skin growths and bumps on your face and also skin tags. Is there a home remedy?
Not really.: Ak stands for "actinic keratosis" - they are small crusty bumps caused by chronic sun damage. Dermatologists usually freeze them with liquid nitrogen; for severe cases a strong cream containing 5fu or Imiquimod is used. Skin tags can be clipped off, or if they are large enough, you can tie a thread around each one to cut off blood supply. But most people (wisely, I think) let their doctor do this.

I have always had this light black skin in my armpits, and on the outside of my knees. What is it?
Hyperpigmentation: Increased melanocytes cause increased pigmentation naturally in your affected areas. If this is a sudden onset or there is any pain or a spreading of the pigmentation you should be seen by a primary physician or dermatologist. Hope this helps!
Possible Infection: If you are shaving your underarm hair, it is possible that folliculitis has developed. Reusing a shaving blade that is stored in the shower increases this likelihood. Consult with a physician for the accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Is it bad to rub deodorant onto your skin 6 times under each armpit? Are there dangerous chemicals in deodorant?
Overkill: The material you lay down with one application is more than adequate to last the day in most situations. If you are involved in sweaty activity and must bathe again, re-application would be reasonable. If you are doing this 6X/day it is an obsessive behavior and you need to find a mental health professional and sort out the reason behind it. Your life could be much better.
