Avoid excessive exposure to sun, wear loose clothes and follow a healthy lifestyle to do away with dark inner thighs.

Lata Sharma, dermatologist from Venus Clinic, suggests how:

* Wear loose clothes: Obese people tend to struggle with the problem of friction, sweating and swelling between their thighs, especially during a walk or exercise. By wearing loose and breathable clothes, you can combat this problem. Ignore fabrics like nylon, and inculcate a balanced diet and regular exercise in your routine to lose weight.

* Consult a gynaecologist: Some women have dark inner thighs only during monthly periods and at the time of pregnancy and lactation or in case of Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Consult a gynaecologist or a skin specialist to control these hormone imbalances.

* Avoid excessive exposure to sun: Sun bathing and over exposure to harmful sun rays leads to dark inner thighs. Apply a mixture of lemon juice, honey on the affected area regularly.

* Avoid taking certain medicines: Certain medicines including oral contraceptives can cause dark inner thighs. Consult a physician as soon as you notice dark patches on your skin to control the issue in the initial stages.

* Follow a healthy lifestyle: A balanced diet and rigorous exercise will control problems like Acanthosis Nigricans. It is a medical condition that leads to discolouration, hyperpigmentation and dark patches with a thick velvety texture on the skin usually in the body folds.
