What causes skin around anus turning white when having genital herpes, outbreaks?

The skin around my anus has turned white. I have no itching or soreness. I m 66 years old, weigh 170, am 5 8 tall. No hemorrhoid trouble. I do have genital herpes and have infrequent outbreaks, but the sores are around the vagina. Any ideas? Thank you for your help.

Hello,

It seems to be post-inflammatory depigmentation and vitiligo. I don’t think there is anything serious.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
