I've just search the net for answer to this problem since my htree year old son has the same, but I have had no luck finding any answers! Can someone please help us? Personally I don't think it can be wee or anything other than a discharge because my son often wets his pants and the wee is just regular wetness besides the white stain. Please if you know what this is post some details. Thanks.

Hi,
If your child is only four years old, white stains in the underwear could be due to variety of reasons including urinary infection, etc. Puberty at the age of four years is a rare possibility. Get his urine examined, if this episode recurs, ifnot forget it.
Let us know if this has recured,
Thanks
