I have a white coat on my clitoris and I can not wipe it off. It does not have a smell to it, it does not have blisters or burn. What is this?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the white coat on clitoris that you describe without examining you (to look for other signs and characteristics that can help in diagnosis). The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, it is important to get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
