Greetings. Firstly it's important to understand the cause for darkening. Whether it's acanthosis nigricans or any pigmented Contact dermatitis and pigmentation associated with it or just constitutional. So please see a qualified dermatologist near you and then this problem can be looked into better. Warm regards, Dr Govind Suresh Mittal, Bengaluru.
