What are the best home remedies to get rid of dark inner groin?

Most women are concerned of their hidden areas because having dark skin against the white complexion normally ruins the whole physical package. Even if you have a flawless skin, having a dark underarm or inner groin could be unsightly.

There are varied reasons why your inner groin turns dark. Usually, dark inner groin is the result of wearing tight underwear or clothing. It can also be due to friction and the constant rubbing of the elastic band of your underwear against your inner thighs or skin.

Most individuals who are obese and overweight are more likely to suffer from having a dark inner groin than those who are slim. Taking oral contraceptives are also known to cause skin pigmentation and darkening of the inner thighs. Skin infections and certain health conditions such as diabetes could also lead you to have dark groin.

    My friend has a black area on the inside of one of her thighs which is tender and can sometimes squeeze stuff out of it. It has grown larger and is now on the other thigh also almost in the same exact spot but much smaller. Any idea what this is??? She is very worried and losing sleep over it.
