If there is no other abnormality, rest assured ,it is just normal. The skin around the anus and genitalia is naturally darker than rest of the body. Some times application of a steroid cream for peri-anal itching can also lead to darkening of the skin in this area.

Some time ago I was diagnosed with Granuloma Annulare,prescribed some cream which did not help at all. I am getting more spots mainly on my right leg (ankle,knee and calf). They don t hurt, itch or anything like that. I am just concern that this is a symptom of some other underlying problem....white blood cells...Vitamin deficiency etc! Apart from that they are not a good look and worry that they are actually spreading. I read all that is written about the condition. Have you got any suggestion or test I should be having? Thank you.
Hi. Yesterday, my GP diagnosed me with celiac disease. My few symptoms seem to stem from vitamin deficiencies and anaemia through malabsorption i.e memory loss, numb tongue, pallor etc. Both my sister and father also have celiac disease, so I am no stranger to the hard-ships of a gluten-free diet. As a student, I have made an informed decision not to follow this treatment plan, with the knowledge that I would be increasing my risk of cancer, because I feel it would be impossible to fit around my lifestyle. I will be seeing my GP again next week for my follow-up appointment, and am planning to ask for a prescription for strong multivitamins, treatment for my anaemia, and digestive enzymes. In your opinion, how effective will this treatment plan be? Is my GP likely to agree to this? Thanks.
