Brief Answer:
Photograph required

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Aerola is pink to begin with and slowly turns darker.
In few females it starts turning darker at puberty while in majority it turns darker after pregnancy.
It is totally normal.
However the pigmentation is generally complete.
If possible upload a photograph of the involved area.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and I would be in a better position to tell whether it is physiological or not.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you
