Dark pigmentation on full body. Having stretch marks on bum thighs and hips. How can I get rid off?

I m 16 and a female. I have dark pigmentation espEcially all over my body. I m naturally light skin but it keeps getting worse. I also have very dark hyperpigmentation on the inner thighs, groin area and vagina . Plus I also have strechmarks on my bum thighs and hips. Can you recommend any advice/creams that I could use??? This is really embarassing for me so I tend to cover up often.

You probably is suffering from Acanthosis nigricans which is a feature of insulin resistance. You need to get investigated and treated accordingly. Consult a dermatologist near your place for further treatment.

Hope this helps
