Question Darkening of vaginal skin at age 39*

Hello and thanks for reading! About two years ago the inside of my left inner thigh, high up by the vagina started to get black discoloration it is blotchy and has never been itchy. Its clearly not normal as this is not on the otherside or any other location. I've searched google for pictures of something that looks like what I have and I have found nothing nothing on websites either. Tonight my husband told me that there is almost like a dark ring of skin around my labia. I did take a look and sure enough there it is. I don't know if this is something seperate from the discoloration on my thigh or in conjunction with either way they are both concerning to me. I've had my family doctor look at it who had absolutely no idea what it is(the thigh no the labia). Any insight would be so much appreciated!

I want to know if you've found out anything for this....I have a similar thing going on that started sometime after May, but my ring was very itchy? Had biopsies done a few days ago and waiting for results. Also, can not find anything like this on-line either.

The only info I have found is that it can be a sign of heightened arousal. A hormonal thing. Mine isn't itchy and coincedentally it went away. Hope you get the answers you need very soon
