Pediatrician Dr. Jasbir S Chugh's  Response
If there is no other abnormality, rest assured ,it is just normal. The skin around the anus and genitalia is naturally darker than rest of the body. Some times application of a steroid cream for peri-anal itching can also lead to darkening of the skin in this area.
