Severe Hyperkeratosis on Chin?

Recommended Posts

I am overweight and have acanthosis nigricans on my neck (which is typical), yes I am working on losing weight and eating healthier. The problem is that I seem to have it on my CHIN. I have had it on my chin before I developed AN on other parts of my body. I tried to find more information on the "velvety" texture of the AN, but could only find hyperkeratosis. I also could not find more information on the hyperkeratosis that I have on my chin. It's velvety, thick, almost rubber-like. It's very dry and difficult to moisturize it. Almost any product I put on will just resist on the area and crumble up, such as Foundation makeup and even face masks. It's very rough and becomes irritated easily no matter what I do. Below I will have pictures of my chin without any makeup, and a picture of it with foundation and you can see how the foundation crumbles off of it. Please I need to know how to treat this.
