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.

if done for now, please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
