Q: White patch on clitoris. Please advise!

Hello I'm a female. I have recently discovered a small white patch on the left side of my clitoris which is visible when you lift the hood. I have never had sex. This small patch looks like the skin itself which has gone white, as if bruised. It doesn't pain or itch. Can anyone help me understand what this could be?

Hi Grace


You really won't know what it is without seeing a doctor or gynecologist.  It may be some sort of skin condition.  Here is some information about genital skin conditions complete with images  so you can compare what you have with the images shown.


I do hope this helps some but please contact your gynecologist and schedule an appointment.
