Hi Just realised that I had white patches on my groin. Its not itchy but it looks like a round white marks. I have been having lower back pain too. It feels like my lower back pain is burning. I have been having this for three weeks now. Thought it was pms. Just recently had my periods and then that s when I realised the white patches.
