Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good day
It appears like a sunlight induced darkening commonly. Avoid exposure to sunlight of that area. Wear sunscreen. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Show to a Dermatologist to rule out allergic disorder and give proper medication by a Specialist.

Hello.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
You need to remove the dead skin from that area quite frequently say every 10 days or so by scrubbing the area nicely after soaking it in luke warm water for 10 minutes. You can do waxing on that skin to remove the dead skin and improve the blood circulation.
