Brown Ring Around Neck

I got this brown ring around my neck when I was pregnant and did not have gestational diabetes. It's been over 3 years and I still have a brown ring around my neck. My blood sugar is always fine. What else can be causing this?

  • I hate to say it, but my husband has the same thing, it's dirt, maybe from sweating alot, and when that happens it tends to get stuck on the neck area and you have to use a loofa to get it off.
