Vaginal itching, darkened skin. Help

Hello, For about a week now I have had itching either side of the vagina on the small area of skin by the top of my inner thigh and the vagina opening, where the pant (nicker) line rests. This area of skin is looking darker almost bruise colour. I am married and have had the same sexual partener for 10 years. I hope you can help many thanks.

Thanks for the query.
There is possibility for contact dermatitis or fungal infection.
So you better consult gynecologist and get examined to find out the possible cause for your problem.
Sometimes infection can also occur by skin contact apart from sexual transmission.
General measures like decreasing weight in case of obesity, using cotton undergarments, keeping the area dry etc can help to some extent.
Take care.
