This is Dr. David

I see you have some acne on your thighs as well

you should ask your doctor to check you for polycystic ovarian syndrome which can cause skin acne, weight gain, excessive hair growth and hormone skin changes which can cause your skin to become darker.

I don't see signs of an STD.

skin darkening in the thighs can be due to hormone changes in your body.

ask your doctor to check your estrogen and androgen and thyroid and cortisol levels to see if they are normal.

let me know if you have other questions.
