This is usually caused by insulin resistance. I get the dark patches in my arm pits, my daughter on her inner thighs. This is usually what doctors give out metformin for... but I hate metformin, as an alternative you can try inositol powder Swansonvitamins.com is a good place to get it.
Chromium picolinate and berberine are also good alternatives, which you can find at most local vitamin shops. Not to mention it will help you in your efforts to loose weight.

I do...... It's on my inner thigh, under my breast and armpit. I was told by my doctor the best way for it to clear is wt loss. I'm here with you for recommendations too. It makes me super self conscious. Thanks for putting this question out there.
