What are these dry white patches on my vagina ?

Hi, I have dry white patches in my vagina. This is not a discharge. I thought it might be a yeast infection, however I have absolutely no symptoms of a yeast infection: No burning, itching, or hurting when I urinate. Help, please?! I am a 19 year old female, 5ft tall, about 110 pounds. No history of any kind of vaginal infection. I have no one to talk to about this and am without a gynecologist . I am trying to find something I can afford seeing as how I don t have insurance. Anyone with answers, please help!!!

Good day. I have noticed a strongish smell after urinating. The pharmacist said its either a fungal or bacterial infection. Diflucan was suggested, but that would only sort out a fungal infection not a bacterial?? i had been on antibiotics a while ago and my life is very stressful right now due to my mother being ill. In the past I would use Diflucan after antibiotics to get rid of the candida which antibiotics cause. NOw there is only a smell of the urine but no actual discharge.

I have a dermatology issue. The skin on my fingers crack. I live in Maine and have suffered from chap fingers all my life. But now it seems to affect my thumbs. During the year, when my hands are clear. A calous will appear. And the skin will peal, and the layers of skin will continue till they eventually bleed. Right now both thumbs are affected. I thought it might be a fungal infection. It could be a contact alegy? The only relief I get is by using tape. Help?
