Here are some. ..: Are you a pubic hair shaver? Do you see a hair in the center of the white spot? If so, they're overactive sebaceous glands, which may be itchy at times, but may be further irritated by shaving. If the hairs are present, they could be sebaceous glands or scabies... But without a direct look, it's hard to come up an accurate impression. So, see Doc timely for confirmation and Rx as needed. ...Read more
