Some skin conditions are visible and can make people self-conscious or embarrassed about their looks. One such condition is acanthosis nigricans. It is characterized by poorly defined and hyperpigmentation of the skin. Generally, this condition can be a sign of a more serious underlying health condition and homeo clinics in Hyderabad offer excellent treatment for this condition by addressing the root cause.
What Is Acanthosis Nigricans?
Acanthosis nigricans is a common skin pigmentation problem with a notable sign of dark patches of skin in body folds and creases. This condition usually affects the armpits, groin and neck. The affected area of skin becomes thickened and you may notice discolouration of the skin as well. This condition is not a skin disease as such but is a skin-related sign of an underlying disease.
Types of Acanthosis Nigricans:
The condition can be associated with different benign and malignant conditions and based on these predisposing conditions, it can be categorized as –
- Obesity-associated acanthosis nigricans: This is the most common type and more common among adults.
- Syndromic acanthosis nigricans: This is associated with certain syndromes.
- Benign acanthosis nigricans: This is the most common among dark-skinned people.
- Drug-induced acanthosis nigricans: This a rare type induced by several medicines.
- Hereditary benign acanthosis nigricans: Manifesting at any age, this is inherited.
- Malignant acanthosis nigricans: Associated with the internal presence of cancerous cells, this type is more common due to stomach cancer.
- Mixed-type acanthosis nigricans: This type occurs in people who have one type of condition and develop new lesions due to a different cause.
Causes of Acanthosis Nigricans:
The exact cause of this condition is not yet clearly known, however, it is understood to be related to insulin resistance. This condition occurs when epidermal skin cells start reproducing rapidly and this abnormal growth of skin cells is often triggered when your blood has high levels of insulin. Here are some common factors that can cause abnormal skin cell growth.
Excessive insulin: The insulin hormone allows glucose produced in your body to enter cells in the body so that these cells can use glucose for energy. However, in some people, especially overweight people, insulin resistance develops over time due to which your body can’t use it properly. This results in the buildup of both glucose and insulin in your bloodstream. Due to excessive insulin, normal skin cells reproduce rapidly causing more production of melanin that leads to the development of a patch of skin that is darker than the skin around the patch. Hence, if you have this condition, it may be an indication that you are susceptible to diabetes. Homeopathy doctors in Hyderabad say proper diet and exercise can correct insulin function and help reduce the condition.
Medicines: Some medications used for birth control, human growth, thyroid disorders, chemotherapy and bodybuilding can also trigger the condition of acanthosis nigricans. All these medications can change insulin levels thereby causing rapid skin cell production. In such cses, when the medications are discontinued, the condition can resolve on its own. So, it is better to use no-side-effects medicines given by the best homeo doctors in Hyderabad to tackle your thyroid problems etc. and get relief from acanthosis nigricans.
Medical conditions: Some medical conditions such as stomach cancer, adrenal gland disorders, pituitary gland disorders, thyroid disorders, etc. can also cause this condition.
