I am too embarassed to go to the doctor. I have really black skin on my butt. This is weird because the rest of my body is a lighter skin color- dark brown. My butt has these white as well as black slightly raised lines - appear to look like stretch marks. I cant wear nathing suits or mine shorts because it continues to upper thigh as well as my lower back. Why do I have a dark butt? Please help!

Is what you are talking about some sort of stretch marks or scarring? Or is it just darker pigmentation?

If it is just darker skin and something you really feel makes a big difference in your life, I would recommend that you see a dermatologist to ask her or his advice. Skin-lightening is not something to be taken lightly, because bleaching creams and etc. can hurt your skin and make the effects even worse.

There ARE skin-lightening creams on the market, but you will do best if you use one that a dermatologist recommends. Especially if you are talking about a large area of skin.

Is this something you would be able to do?

i have the same problem. i've tried a couple of things and they've helped in reducing the pigmentation:
1. exfoliate everyday
2. liberally apply mouisturiser after exfoliating.

hope it helps

I came across your post and im really glad to hear that im not the only one going through this odd situation,i thought it was all in my head. i have always been ashamed to show skin on my lower body because it is like 2 or 3 shades darker than that of my upper body. I had a baby 2mths ago and my belly is now the darkest part of my body.. What is going on!!

My wife is white so her skin is very pale but inside her butt it is very dark. It's been like this ever since we first met 5 years ago. Is there anything that can be done about this?

Everybody has these multicolored skin on the bottom
Have you ever noticed yours? if its matches with your rest of the skin color?
I am not trying to be mean but why you expect physical perfection from a women but not from yourself?
Please try to answer these question as I am starving from.

The dark pigmentation is probably caused by a fungal infection that's common in that area. She can try washing it with anti-dandruff shampoo on a regular basis or see a dermatologist.

I'm curious why you think something should be done about this? Many women--and men--have darker areas on their skin, even in/on their buttocks and genital areas.

This is completely normal, very common, and nothing to be concerned about.

Some individuals feel the need to bleach these delicate areas of the skin, which can lead to very serious side effects (skin burning, for one), and is seen primarily in women and men who work in the sex industry.

I hope you love your wife's skin...pale and darkness and blemishes and all!

I am a 26 yr old female, exercise regularly, drinks plenty of water and has a healthy diet and my hubby recently pointed out to me when I tried on my bikini that my lower back and butt is much darker than the rest of my body. I never had this problem before and cannot understand what caused it. Someone mentioned to me today that it could be caused by me wearing jeans everyday. Is that possible? I don't want this black ass for summer :-(
