Brief Answer:
Skin lightening creams

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Dark underarms are a common problem.
I treat such cases with skin lightening creams and it gives good response.
You can use azealic acid 10% cream daily in night for a month.
Apply in night keep for half hour and then wash off.
Don't keep it over night.
In morning you can apply mometasone cream.
Let me know if you have any other doubt.
Thank you
