Angry dirty skin

I am a 16 year old male. I seem to have very dirty skin in the areas where skin folds (under-arms, waste line, etc.). This is not from simply lack of care, I have been scrubbing and scrubbing for quite some time with no avail. I guess maybe I did not clean properly when I was smaller. Despite the reason I wish to know if there is any sort of special soap I can use to clean my skin since conventional soaps have failed to have any effect. Please help out, it is very embarrising to be seen like this and I don't know what to do. Thank you

What do you mean by "dirty?" It there actual dirt? Or do you just mean that your skin looks darker there? I don't know what your ethnic background is, but I do know that for some people (mostly men) of Asian backgrounds, they have hyper-pigmentation in certain areas (e.g. armpits, elbow crease, back of knees, groin area, and buttocks). This is genetic and nothing can really be done. There are skin bleaching creams that exist, but I do not know about the safety of these creams. I hope that this was helpful. Don't worry about it, I am sure that you care about it a lot more than anyone else would. No one has perfectly even pigmentation of their skin.
