Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. This black spot around neck could be acanthosis nigricans and is a sequelae of diabetes very commonly. Just keep diabetes in control and try to lose weight, this will subside. Meet her physician and let them have a look as well.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
