What Causes Dark Inner Thighs?

Dark skin on the inner thighs can be experienced by anyone, regardless of skin tone. It occurs when the skin on the inner thigh produces an abundance of melanin, a pigment that gives skin its color. This is called hyperpigmentation. The discoloration of dark inner thighs may even stretch into the bikini or groin area.


There are a number of reasons why a person may experience a darkening of the skin on the inner thighs. Some of these reasons may include:

  • chafing, which can occur during exercise or walking, and may cause the skin to become thin, itchy, and discolored
  • hormonal imbalance, particularly among women during lactation, pregnancy, or menstruation, or among those with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • certain medications, like hormonal oral contraceptives or certain chemotherapy medications
  • sun exposure
  • dry skin
  • friction from tight clothing
  • acanthosis nigricans, a skin pigmentation disorder
  • diabetes mellitus
