Hi I feel very itchy around the labia, and I have a small painless white rash, only visible if I see it in a handheld mirror. There is no abnormal discharge. What could be the cause?

Hello,
You may have a vulval skin infection,probably fungal in type.But you need to be examined by your doctor to confirm.Its probably only confined to the skin if there is no discharge or itching inside.You will need antibiotics but only after the skin infection has been confirmed.
