Hello
My skin turned into a really dark complexion in the middle of my cheats, I tried to scrub, put oil or cream. But it does not do anything. Should I consult a specialist?

The first picture is pretty bad quality so I have tried to take a picture that looks similar to what I have

Got it--thanks

What have you tried so far?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I've tried to scrub and put different moisturizing cream and natural oil like coconut oil. I only use gentle soap
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.

OK

This looks like a fungal skin infection

I'd suggest you use over the counter clotrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks to clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information

Okay thank you for your help. I'll try it out and if after two weeks It doesn't change I'll consult.
