Hi

I do understand your concern. You have mentioned your current weight and this sounds definitely contributory to your current concern. When the skin of the thighs rub together, the friction constantly irritates the skin. The skin may become inflamed and the inflammation may lead to a post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This causes the dark discoloration.

Losing weight will help eliminate your problems. Increased weight may cause hormonal imbalance and there is an association between weight and skin pigmentation. The hormonal imbalance which may also be associated with increase in weight may further contribute to the skin problem.
