Thanks for query,
You can use kojic acid cream and soap for black coloration of inner thigh.
Apply little quantity for first time, if there is no irritation you can continue.
Keep that part dry and clean.
Ok and bye.

Hello and welcome to HCM,
It could be just inocouos pigmentation without any cause. Best thing is to clean and dry and apply emollients like Nivea cream which keeps it healthy in summer. Talcom powder is also good. Thanks
