Dear herbpathy,

My thighs have turned dark and my Vagina is also turning dark. Is there any herb that I can put to lighten this.

To lighten the thigh area, you may apply sandal pack on it, regularly. Also you may consult your beautician regarding it, I think she'd be able to help you better. DO not worry, it is not a disease. Just clean the area regularly and apply some face packs o the area.
