Dark skin above buttocks, no itching, not dead skin, also occurs under breasts. Causes?

Hi, I ve noticed that the skin above my buttocks is very dark. I am XXXXXXX, but a light complexion so it is very noticeable. I am very embarrassed and haven t been to the doctor yet. It does not itch or anything. At first I thought it was dead skin but that is not the case. I also have darkened skin under my breasts and on my upper abdomen . The skin in all places is a little rough.

Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.

Most likely cause in your case is intertrigo or friction dermatitis.

My advise to you would be to use good aloe vera containing moisturizer twice daily.

Also you can apply hydrocortisone cream once a day,it will help.

A visit to dermatologist will be helpful for diagnosis and proper treatment of the cause.

Hope this helps.
