The skin on my legs under and near the scrotum has recently gotten quite dark, and the boarders of the dark regions have become increasingly well defined. I don't think I have jock itch, but I do have a constantly sweaty genital area, and a strong urge to itch. I was also diagnosed with mono last week, not sure if that has anything to do with it.
