In brief: There are many OTC

lighteners that can help, although they can be irritating.
You can try , but if not working you likely need prescription strength bleach and chemical peels to lighten. There are also medical conditions that can lead to thickening of armpits. So I suggest seeing dermatologist if not improving with OTC
