Bumps,scars, and darkness

I have bumps and scars on my vagina and I know it comes from shaving and stuff, but even when I don't shave I still get bumps. So how can I help get rid of these. I've been to a gyno and she just prescribed antibiotics but it didn't help. It's also dark there to as well as in my inner thighs, behind my thighs, and on my butt. I used to be a little overweight so I know losing weight would help and Im losing weight but how can I get the darkness to go away? I don't want to use skin bleaching creams or anything. So anything I can buy from a store like cvs or something or home remedies?

For the bumps after shaving, apply warm compresses after shaving and keep the area clean. Other treatment options include shaving in a different direction, tweezing, exfoliating with facial scrubs, sponges, towels or creams containing acid and ibuprofen or other NSAIDs. Topical application of dilute glycolic acid and salicylic prepared solutions are also helpful.

Regarding the skin darkening of the thighs, some darkening may be present in some people but if it too dark then hyperpigmenattion skin and acanthosis nigricans need to be ruled out. Treatment is based on diagnosis.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
