Hi Dear,

Thanks for the query.

Under arm and area between the thighs is usually dark and hyperpigmented.

It occurs due to the constant friction that occurs between the body parts.

Also I would like to know?

-Do you had any fungal infection in groin or under arm area?

-Have you undergone laser hair removal for underarms?

-Is it having velvety texture and skin tags present?

-What is your weight? Are you overweight?

Please answer the above question to help you better.

Also you can try-
Rexona Skin Light Underarm Whitening Deodorant Roll for underarms.

For the groin area you can try mixed creams containing steroid and antifungal.

Also hydroquinone and steroid containing creams can be used for skin lightening.


Also in your earlier query you asked about uneven skin tone over face .

It can be corrected by doing glycolic peels . Also IPL or fractional CO2 laser can do a facial rejuvenation.

Glycolic peels and microdermabrasion can improve and match your facial color.

Also you can apply glycolic acid containing creams over the face.

Hope this helps.

I will be available for follow up in future.
