Dark inner thighs can be found in men and women of any age. The discoloration and pigmentation of the inner thighs is caused due to friction, excessive sweating, wearing tight clothes, sun exposure, hormonal imbalance and medications. Another reason could be a serious condition such as acanthosis nigricans where the skin develops dark patches and becomes discolored. In such a case, a doctor’s consultation is required immediately.
The skin darkening in such an area can be treated by keeping it extremely dry and clean. Exfoliating regimes can help treat this better. Aloe vera gel and vitamin E sources help in reducing dark patches. Lemon could help the skin lighten as it is a natural bleaching agent.
