The discolouration is likely to be due to hyperpigmentation of the underarms.

You can use skin lightening creams. 2% Hydroquinone creams are most effective and are available readily over the counter. You should apply these.

For removal of underarm hair, waxing is the best method. It becomes painless over time and also the hair becomes thinner. Laser removal of hair of course will give you a permanent smooth look but it is expensive.

It wold be best if you consult a dermatologist for a definite opinion.
