brownish colour skin(upper inner legs)

Hi everyone

I have this discolour since childhood,(I am 24 now) and I always thought it will go away by itself. I Have this brownish discolouration on my upper, inner legs, (near my viagaga) and I was wondering if anyone knows what it is or what causes it, and how can i get rid of it..... thanks

If I know where you are referring, that is common. I have heard that a good way to lighten it is by exfoliating in that area.

Re: brownish colour skin(upper inner legs)

hi there

are these marks like darkish blotches on your skin?

it could be livedo reticularis......it is a condition that unfortunately does not go away and is more visible in cold conditions.

I have this because of a skin condition I have called vitiligo.
