There can be many reasons behind dark underarms skin. You need to find the reason, to get best solution. Common reasons are:
1. weight gain that cause increased friction.
2.repeated shaving and waxing
3.usage of deodrants or perfumes
4.insulin resistance (weight gain, neck pigmentation).
It would be better to consult a dermatologist in person .
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.
