Is it normal to have discolored skin in the creases of your legs?

No, it is not normal to have discolored skin in the creases of your legs. Without seeing what this discolored skin looks like, I can only make a guess.
Do you have any medical conditions, such as high blood sugar? Some individuals with type 2 diabetes develop a condition called acanthosis nigricans. Patches of dark, velvety skin appear in the folds and creases of the body, usually in the armpits.
