Yes I would do what it takes to have a spotless inner-thigh and crotch area. I have started using scrub and moisturizer daily. But its of little help.

If it is due to sweating infection than use fourdram oilment.

I didn't want to post because what i have is just a theory and not a solution with immediate results. But it's based on what I've learned/experienced over the years so i will post, lol.
Firstly, if anyone of you has started noticing these skin colour changes recently (meaning that you did not have the discoloration earlier); then I'd sincerely advise you to get it checked out by a doctor to rule out any issues, both minor or more serious.
It could also just be our naturally darker Indian skin tone as someone else said above; in which case you should own it and love it and not be embarrassed or try to get rid of it; remember, the grass always seems greener on the other side and there's some ghostly white guy or girl lying on the beach or a tanning bed right now in some Western country, trying to get beautiful golden brown tanned skin like ours.
But if you've had these dark patches since a long time; then i suggest to you to consider whether it could be because of your innerwear being too tight or something that is causing constant friction in that delicate area. I personally wear loose boxer briefs but many of us wear tight briefs which are almost like thongs; and most of the innerwear brands I've tried here are low quality (beware of the cheapo Amazon stuff especially). These tight and cheaply made garments with their rough edges will rub against your delicate groin/crotch/inner thigh area as you go about your day; walking, bouncing about on the hot bike seat in the sun on horrible roads and what not.
I had dark skin around my groin too as a teen; used to play cricket and ride my bicycle all day and night; and then the dark areas almost disappeared after i became a lazy bum chilling in bed or a car seat all the time.
So yes, even if that's not the reason, I'd still suggest trying looser fitting garments of the best quality you can afford; doesn't have to be Gucci/Armani and there's many nice Indian brands at friendly prices. Try boxer briefs instead of briefs so that the edges aren't torturing your delicate skin all day. Your little buddies down there will thank you for it and for all the extra fresh air they'll get๐Ÿ˜
And someone just said above that they're using scrubs to lighten the skin; please use only gentle scrubs and only every few days; not daily. And definitely don't use an actual scrubbing glove/sponge/loofah; that will be the same as the rough tight innerwear but with much more friction/damage done to the skin.
Sorry for the long theoretical post but it's what I've learned from various resources and it's good advice for anyone and not just those with dark skin.
Best of luck๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ‘

As far as I know this issue is due to food habits too, pl avoid brinjal fried in oil, avoid eating fish frequently (especially if u r taking alcohol frequently) and dry fish too, everyday use washed inner wear, don't use the same inner wear days together, may b u can use scratch guard alternately , external application, I know this from some article about skin patches around inner thigh around groin

Improper hair removing is the issue here..

People using hair removal creams without patch testing.. all hair removal creams are not for everyone..

Same goes with shaving creams, blades and after shave lotions..

At home as far as possible dont wear underwear. Even if u need to wear it, apply talcum powder. It will keep the crotch area dry and free of any fungal infections or smells.

Couple of reason for that. We are South Asian we have natural dark skin and one other main reason is fat thighs when they rub each other itโ€™s obvious that they turn dark. Avoid V briefs use trunks lengthy ones.

dark patches around the crotch and bum areas: this could be due to one of 4 factors.
1) we have all come from mother africa (ACCEPT THE FACT!). through the centuries and migration, people and their skin/hair/eye colours have evolved due to climate and environmental conditions. we should be proud of our skin colours...variety is the spice of life! our brown skin is the least appreciated but MOST WANTED, but the white man or black man will not tell you that. the white/caucasian will use tanning creams or machines or get burnt by the sun TRYING... and the black using whitening creams that contain bleach TRYING... to achieve WHAT YOU AND I TAKE FOR GRANTED....GOD'S GIFT!
2) it could be caused by old age (which we cannot avoid) and/or by chaffing. chaffing is when 2 surfaces rub against each other, specially in fat men/women.
3) it could be caused by allergic reaction to exfoliating creams (hair removal creams). this happens if you have not done a patch test on your skin to see if there is an allergic reaction.
4)it could be due to fungal infection (if it itches and/or oozes and/or gives a bad smell). this must be treated by a skin specialist. to avoid fungal infections, bathe regularly and DRY the areas to avoid fungal build-up (fungi love heat and moisture). then apply coconut oil to avoid dampness. also avoid wearing tight and/or synthetic and/or v shaped underwear. instead wear loose, 100% cotton trunks....so that your jewels get some AIRING. avoid wearing underwear when you are home and AVOID wearing anything when in bed (specially during hot weather) and remember to change your bed sheets every week or 2 weeks. a shower before bed will help with your cleanliness, your *** LIFE and keep your bed smelling clean!

C) SALICYLIC ACID (5-10%) IN CREAMS MAY HELP TO SOME EXTENT IN REDUCING THE DARKNESS (get your doctor to get the pharmacist to prepare you one). start with 5% cream and then go to 10% to avoid allergic reaction.

If it is because of skin inflammation or simply darkened skin (which is quite common), use Apple Cider Vinegar. Mix one part of it with 3-4 parts of water and apply it to the area and let it dry. Do it everyday and you'll see results in a few weeks. Or you can use Aloe Vera even.

Not shittiing uncessarry stuffs! Only posting based in medical etiology! If you have seen them recently and if you are an active one sexually! Might be chance of fungal infection (if it's itching and burning), you can take warm bath with Tulsi leaves! Unpredictable changes happens in the body! Also due to social and private life style. Another cause may be skin pigmentation! Wait for few days and check whether they are disappearing or still the same with no improvement.

India being a tropical country hot humid condition causes excessive sweating and resultant moisteur predidposes fungal infection which leaves black pigmentation.

1. Maintain hygiene with frequent cleaning and drying. Change innerwear regularly. School / hostel habit of using some unwashed innerwear for several days further increases risk of such infections.
2. Avoid self medicating - many cosmetics cause skin irritation. Consult GP or dermatologist once for evaluation
3. If you see round areas with raised borders it is Fungsl infection. Anti fungal ointments will help. Avoid scratching which perpetuates tissue injury and inflammation.
4. Many times black patches are end result of what we call PIH - Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. This needs dermatologist opinion and is very hard to treat.

Take home message

1. Maintain hygiene of groin skin
2.Avoid application of over the counter cosmetics in an attempt to self treat
3.Consult dermatologist

Lemon and curd mixture, just use the squeezed lemon to gently rub and leave for a while preferably before you shower. It will be gone in few days.
But, the best thing is to wear underwear that are not too tight and don't scratch your inner thighs.

I'm a dermatologist.

My suggestion: Do not use acidic products on skin without consultation.

Dark groin/inner thigh PATCHES may be one of many things: genetics, obesity, acanthosis nigricans, atopic dermatitis, infections such as tinea incognito, frictional dermatitis (thighs/underwear) and many more.

Do not use products that people advise online.. please show it to a doctor. Not all causes need medication..and not all medication works.. what is right for you, for your skin, for your condition, for your diagnosis, must be decided by a doctor. Please don't do temporary/harmful gharelu nuskhas. You may end up damaging that area of skin.
That's all i have to say. Baaki Marzi aapki. Tc

@sranabir - You've given the best advice. There's no substitute to healthy food, daily exercise and plenty of water to have overall good health. There's no point in going for expensive, complicated treatments. Just practice plain, good hygiene. Always wear cotton underwear, preferably boxer - not ones with elastic around the thighs which block air circulation and cause fungus.

I suggest everyone to use natural almond oil regularly after shower and before going to bed... Any moisturizers or ailment will just be a instant relief but will adversely increase darkening...

U can also try applying natural Alovera gel...

They have no side effects

Dark patch on the thigh around the crotch is natural and almost all dark colored Asians has it.
It's certainly not a skin disease or disorder.
You can lighten the dark color skin by applying retinol cream which is expensive in India, I think.
The cheaper way is using cautiously mild skin bleach. Do not use skin bleach for a long period of time
it may cause some kind of skin complications because the inner thigh skin is very delicate and sensitive.
