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!!!

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?

I am having blurred vision, which sometimes starts to tunnel with outlining streaks. I have headaches in the back of my lower head, I feel as though I just got off a marry-go-round, or doped up, or drunk. Then there is a feeling of a low voltage shock in my head and everything moves side ways. I also and have a cough that is productive and a discharge with intense itching. The palm of my hands and finger itch and I claw them raw during the night. I think the all of these are intermingled some how. Is there a fungal infection that would cause all of these? Or is my head problems something else completely? I am really tired of feeling dizzy. I also seem to be sleeping more--but it seems the only way to couping with the being dizzy. Thanks!!!
