Usually yeast: This can be normal depending on where you are in your cycle, etc, but usually irritating, itchy, white clumps are a sign of a yeast infection. It's probably worth trying an over-the-counter treatment like monistat, but if it does not improve or you have pain, bleeding, fever, etc - see a doctor.

Unsure.: Yeast can cause a clumpy, white discharge that doesn't have a bad odor that cause cause redness and itching. However, if sounds like you are talking about vaginal tissue. These lesions would likely need to be examined and more history obtained to be able to provide you with useful input about the diagnosis or possible treatment.
