Dark area between legs around my balls

This answer was rated:

Dark area between legs around my balls

The area between the legs and around the groin area may become dark due to a fungal infection. This is especially so if you have an itch or a rash together with the dark color.

Other causes of the dark color are excessive sweating, friction between the tissues, especially in overweight people. In many men, this area is normally dark and is not a cause for concern.

I hope this helps.

What can I use to get rid of the dark area and infection


Please use Lotrimin lotion, available without a prescription. You can also dust Lotrimin powder in the area twice a day to control sweat.
