Dark marks on the body

Many of us have this problem. Having dark neck, armpit elbows and knees. The skin on the neck can darken due to hormonal disorders, sun exposure, and drug-induced or other skin-related conditions. Darkening of the neck may be associated with changes in the texture of the skin when compared to the surrounding skin conditions like itching and dark patches in other parts of the body.

There are various potential causes for armpits becoming darker including: deodorants and antiperspirants (chemical irritants) shaving (irritation and abrasion) dead skin cell accumulation (lack of exfoliation)

Body odour is a common problem in the summer and many deodorants contain aluminum salts that dry out the sweat but in turn clog the pores, often leading to darkening of the underarms. Dark underarms usually aren't a sign of anything serious, but some people may find them embarrassing. 

Dark skin on the knees and elbows is a common occurrence. It can affect individuals of all skin types, though it often occurs in people with darker skin tones. That's because darker skin is more likely to overproduce melanin.
