The dark patches are caused by chronic inflammation due to shaving. You can go for laser therapy to lighten the skin and to remove the hair permanently.

Kind regards

I also have a related question.

I have a dark patch on both my inner tighs from about midway to the joint and, surrounding and on my vagina. I am/have always been also overweight (although not majorly overweight).

Is these dark patches caused by friction/the tighs rubbing together or pigmentation.

Is there any treatment to reduce the darkness?

Please help. Thanx.
