Dark skin near butt,inner thighs & waist

Hello Doctor, My skin is very dark near my butt and inner thighs compared to my rest of the body. my butt becomes dry most of the time. i could also see lot of dead skins on my butt and black marks on my waist. i think this dark mark on my waist is because of wearing tight pants. i apply moisturizer on my butt and waist when it becomes dry. How can i get rid of this dark skin on my butt and my waist? I am male/26 years old. I am going to get married in a years time and therefore you understand my problem. Since i have a year in hand can you suggest any remedy which can atleast make it less darker over time. I am a software engineer working in a regular shifts 10am to 8pm.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Probably your condition is genetic,and if its so then it might be a difficult job to change the color.You can try hydroquinone cream locally at night ...just see that it doesnt cause any redness or irritate your skin.
take care,
