Do you also have a dark bikini line and inner thighs as compared to your skin color?
A darker pubic area is completely normal for everyone, this darkening is called hyperpigmentation. The bikini line and inner thighs are the most common places for hyperpigmentation.
Some of the causes of dark skin around the pubic area include:
Hair removal creams/ Shaving: You most likely shave, wax, or sugar your legs because you want to remove your hair, which can result in hyperpigmentation and ingrown hair scarring.
Hormone: The melanocytes in the skin are specific cells that produce melanin. These melanocytes are particularly hormone-sensitive in the vaginal region. In reaction to hormonal changes, the vaginal area gradually darkens over time. This may occur during puberty, pregnancy, or natural aging.
Friction and inflammation: The potential of melanocyte hyperactivity rise with an increase in friction. Friction can cause melanocyte cells to produce more melanin, leading to pigmentation around the pubic area. The skin may get inflamed as a result of friction, and this inflammation may then result in hyperpigmentation after the fact. Compared to other parts of the body, the skin surrounding the inner thighs and bikini area is thinner and more sensitive. This is why even the slightest amount of friction can aggravate these places and make them darker.
Fungal infection: Fungal infections are also a cause of dark pubic skin. Both men and women experience this as a skin condition.
