    Hi there,

    I didn't realise the pictures were upside down - I thought you were wearing a mask!!

    I've never heard of browning of the skin being a symptom of Diabetes.

    The main symptoms are: Unquenchable thirst, weight loss, weeing a lot more, thrush, extreme tiredness, pins and needles type feelings in arms and legs. Google this as I am not medically qualified and obviously everyone is different.

    Maybe log into the Diabetes UK website and post on there for further input.

    Best of luck and keep safe!!

    hello, i had the same and back of my neck became black, it was due to diabetes. do no scrub it, i tried scrubbing them, bled myself and never got away. check with ur doctor. it can also be the result of water fluids in your body.

    I am not a doctor, i just had the same problem but at the back and sides of my neck. and once suddenly had a breakout on the back of my hand and inner thighs. they turned black!

    Again check with your doctor asap.

    I am not sure that this is a sign of diabetes.

    Look for other signs.



    Going to the toilet a lot

    Have you got a good chemist you can talk to?
