Hi,
The discoloration of the skin in the groin is due to the friction caused by  thighs rubbing together, more commonly seen in overweight and dark skinned individuals.

Thios discoloration is accompanied by thickening of the skin in the area.Thickening of the skin protects it against rubbing, pressure and irritation. The majority of the forms of hyperkeratosis are painless.It is due to excessive accumulation of keratin in the outer layers of the skin.

Treatment is with creams that contain as the active ingredient salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acid (lactic or glycolic acid), urea, or tretinoin to soften the keratin and removing the thickened skin.

Skin lightening agents like Hydroquinone 2-4% can also be applied to reduce the pigmentation in the area.
