Brief Answer:
Can be a fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen the attached image. The white marks on the vaginal flaps can be due to a local fungal infection. This can be associated with an itching. Topical antifungal ointments and using a vaginal wash to clean the area can help. In case this is persistent then do get it examined by your gynecologist and get oral antifungal drugs prescribed.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
