Thanks for posting your query at I can understand your concern.

You seem to be having intertrigo which is a mix of candidial and bacterial infection which leads to itching and darkening of color.

The treatment would be application of an anti fungal and antibiotic cream like neosporin and clotrimazole.

In case you can post a picture of your concern, it would be better as I can just provide you with a possible diagnosis on the basis of your description. However if I can see the concern then I can provide a better diagnosis.

Thanks for your reply.

The pictures suggest that you have an intertrigo as I mentioned earlier.

I would recommend the same creams to be applied. Neosporin or fucidin cream mixed with clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks will help resolve the condition.

The colour change takes atleast 3 to 6 months to resolve. It resolve on its own.

Take care
