Skin problem
What should one use to keep the skin between the thighs clean? My sister has lost weight but this area has remained dark due to the friction between the thighs. She has tried many things without any luck.

Hallo Ann
it will normally go back to normal with time. Alternatively she can see a dermatologist for treatment with a retinoid or hydroquinone. Tis is best not to do on your own as the wrong use of bleaching agents can actually cause hyperpigmentation.
