It is really hard to say what the white spots are without seeing them. A local inflammation might have occurred. If the spots are not elevated above the rest of the skin then you might want to use an over the counter anti-inflammatory cream for several days. If the spots do not disappear or redness, swelling or itching appears, you might want to schedule a check up with your gynecologist.
