  • This problem is mainly due to sweating. The air circulation in this area will be less so sweat will not get evaporated easily and that only will cause more problems.

    To avoid this problem, it is advisable to dry the area completely before getting dressed and apply prickly heat powder which will absorb the wetness and thus will help in not getting any itching and blackening.

    You can consult a skin specialist who will suggest the ointment which you can apply in those parts to come back to normal color.

    But the best way is to apply fresh coconut oil in those places regularly two times. In the morning after having your bath dry the area and then apply coconut oil and wait for 5 or 10 minutes. Then you can apply prickly heat powder and then you can get dressed up.

    Again in the evening after your bath you have to apply the coconut oil on the are where you are observing black patches.

    If you follow the above system without fail for 2 or 3 months, the blackening will come down. Coconut oil is the best remedy.
