Hi easwer
Welcome to healthcaremagic

Hyperpigmentation of penis skin and thigh after fungal infection is a common problem. Tinea cruris does not leave permanent skin discoloration, it may take up to several months for the color to match between skin areas that are affected and not affected. It may take months for skin color to blend and look normal, but it always does. It takes time for the skin tone to even out. You may help this by avoiding getting the area exposed to sunlight. By preventing a suntan, you will help to cut down on the exaggeration of the uneven discoloration. Sunscreen is important. You need to wear a SPF 30 lotion after cleaning the area with soap daily morning to prevent the dark spots from getting any darker in the sun, even if the yeast is gone.
