I feel a bit childish for asking.. but.

I noticed that my skin around my crotch area is a lot darker than the skin around other areas as well as my arm pits. I shower everyday and scrub. So i am a bit puzzled as to why my skin seems so much "dirtier and unclean" then the resof my body. is this natural?

Please do a search on "acanthosis nigricans". It is a condition with having dark underarms, groin area and neck that look 'dirty'. It has nothing to do with bathing. My son has this as well, and was diagnosed by a dermatologist.

Good Luck.
