I have dark skin discoloration under my arms and in the vaginal area, how to get rid of this?

I am white, and I have dark skin discoloration under my arms and in the vaginal area. It is embarrassing to me to even go to the doctor to ask about it because it looks dirty . Is there any way that I can fix this problem or is it normal?

Hello Suriya,
Welcome to healthcareMagic.
Before answering your question, may I ask your age and weight.
Do you have Diabetes or anyone else in the family. Is the skin only darker in colour or is it thick and dirty looking as if it has not been washed?
If yes, you may be having Acanthosis Nigricans. Please answer the questions so that I can suggest you further.
