Hello ,
I have dark armpit skin.
To reduce the dark pigmentation , I have stopped using perfumes and any other product which has strong chemicals.
Instead apply mild talc ,but still there is no improvement.
Also i tried some skin lightening creams but still no effect.
Would appreciate if you provide me any home remedy for this.
Thanking you in advance !

I am not familiar with these. If you can find out the ingredients, then I could tell you if other topicals may be worth a try.

These are the most common lighteners that inhibit melanin synthesis. You could also try Arbutin, I suppose, but check with your doc that your pigmentaion is from excess melanin not something else.

Hi,

Regarding discoloration for the arm pit, there are many conditions which can cause this. Having a correct diagnosis is important.

You might want to go to a derm. There is a condition, acanthrosis nigricans that can cause discoloration. Acanthosis nigricans can be associated with endocrine diseases.
