Itching in inner thigh and groin area. Taking medicine, whole area is black. Treatment to change the colour?

hi, I am 21 year old. about six months i had got some itching in the innerthighs, groin and around testicles and it become worst after 1 month. There were also some small bumps also. The itching was very much hard and the whole area become black. And then i consulted a skin specialist. He gave some tablets, cream and some powder. Now it has past about 2 months and there no itching or any discomfort. But the real problem is that the entire area remains black. It is not changing. I am very much disturbed on seeing this. can u please suggest any remedies please?

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

Please get a KOH mount done,

This can confirm the fungal etiology.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

for pigmentation you can use a depigmenting agent like melalite cream,

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
