Hello doctor,

My vaginal opening is white in color and it itches a lot around that area. It has been like this only for the past 4 to 5 days.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The presence of itching over the vaginal opening with white discoloration is a possible indication of vulval candidiasis or fungal infection which can be treated with local and oral antifungals, but before starting any medicines, please get it confirmed by a local examination by your gynecologist or you may send a picture of the lesion for diagnosis and further advise.
