The Color Of The Skin Around The Genitals And Groin Is Darker Than The Other Skin?
sorry it’s a bit vulgar. My genitals are a little black, since elementary school, and are flanked by 2 purple flesh that is wilted and letoy, one large and one small. The meat was just hanging there, and I was a little disgusted by it. it hurts a little if you touch it. Whereas the place where urine comes out is also blocked by the same large flesh. During elementary school, this purple color was not that much, over time it got bigger and almost all around my genitals were purple. I think this is normal, because I don’t dare to look at the genitals of other people, but I also wondered if this was normal?

The skin color around the genitals and groin usually tends to be darker than other areas of the body. This is because, the genital area and groin often experience repeated friction. In children, there are often birthmarks (Mongolian spots) that are darker in color (black, blue, or purple) due to deposition of skin pigment that has accumulated in one particular area. Usually, these birthmarks will fade between 5 and 7 years of age, but in some rare conditions, they may persist into adulthood. In addition, the growth of fine hairs around the genitals can also make the color appear darker. This condition can be seen more clearly in people who are overweight, often use tights and made from heat, and also people who have sensitive skin types.
As long as these complaints do not appear accompanied by other complaints, such as itching, pain, swelling, peeling, scaling, blisters, or other systemic complaints, chances are that your condition is not dangerous and is still part of a normal skin variation. The presence of meat hanging around the genitals can also occur due to normal skin variations due to repeated friction, or often referred to as skin tags.
However, if you feel that your complaint is spreading wider, feels pain, interferes with the process of defecating or sexual intercourse, and makes you lose confidence, then there's nothing wrong with having your complaint checked directly to a doctor or specialist in skin and genitals. In addition to the natural variation, your complaint may also arise for other reasons, for example:
Hyperpigmentation after inflammation Hypertrophic scars, keloids (formation of excessive scar tissue after inflammation and wounds) Genital skin infections, for example due to tinea cruris, genital warts, syphilis, molluscum contagiosum, chancroid genital skin tumors, for example due to melanoma Other skin inflammation, for example atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, drug eruption. Vaginal fistula (an abnormal channel that connects the vagina to other organs, such as the digestive or urinary organs), and so on. You. If necessary, the doctor will take tissue samples from the flesh-like mass in your genitals for microscopic examination (biopsy).
In the meantime, you should not worry too much and do the following tips:
Choose the type of pants and underwear that are soft, loose, and comfortable to use. Clean your genitals well every shower, after urinating, and after sexual intercourse Avoid casual sex Avoid giving careless handling to the genitals, without direct supervision from a doctor Avoid contact between genitalia with substances that have the potential to trigger irritation or allergies on the genital skin.
