I have dark skin under boolth my arms, amd between my legs, anf in some other places. Do you have any idea what it might be?
The area under the arm and between the legs are many times more pigmented and dark compared to rest of the body. Most probably it could be normal. Sometimes there could be fungal infection leading to such darkened skin.
Do visit a dermatologist.
