I have a dry dark patch on my stomach and between my breasts as well. It mainly itches a little, however nothing peculiar about it besides being dark and itchy. I should also mention that i suffer from chronic yeast infections and I have seen a doctor concerning this and have been through repeated blood test for diabetes and any sexually transmitted diseases. With every test there is no answer, and it still continues to plague my life and i believe that this may be a cause to the dry spots on stomach as well.
Are you on any medications for the chronic yeast infections?
