Skin rashes and spots on the genital are a common skin concern. The doctors
who will be well qualified to discuss this issue with you include your OB / GYN doctor or your primary care doctor
. A common cause of white spots on the vulva and skin of the clitoris is a yeast infection. This generally involves reddening and inflammation of the skin, with a white discharge on top. The areas can be generally painful or itchy and there can be a thick white vaginal discharge. Often over the counter anti fungal creams are quite effective. On the other hand, herpes, which is a sexually transmitted infection caused by a virus, can also cause small spots on the genital. These are more rounded, often blisters containing clear liquid. The blisters usually sit on a red base. They can be very painful or have a burning sensation. Unlike a yeast infection, they are not as generalized over all the skin of the genitals, and they should be evaluated by a doctor. As always the diagnosis and the management of your particular concern will require a physical examination by your personal physician. Setting up an office visit with your dermatologist
or your primary care doctor might be advised.
