Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Shaving the pubic hair is a good thing to do as long as it is done with the right technique. If this procedure is performed using an improper technique, the skin may become irritated. Not only that, open hair follicles can also be infested with harmful microorganisms that cause infections, for example fungi, bacteria, or even parasites. It is this irritation and infection that is likely to cause your pubic skin to feel itchy and white patches like this. In addition to irritation and infection, itching and white spots on the genitals may also result from seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, drug eruptions, insect bites, or many other possibilities.
Our advice, you go directly to see your doctor or a specialist skin and genitals. Through direct inspection, or coupled with additional tests, such as vaginal tissue smears, often your condition can be identified with the originator as well as the best treatment.
In the meantime, don't give any random treatment to your genitals yet. Also avoid scratching the pubic, even though it feels itchy. Do not also forcibly slough off white patches that appear on the genitals, especially with dirty hands. Take a diligent bath, clean your genitals after every bowel movement, and always wear underwear that is also clean, made from soft, and replaced regularly. Finally, avoid risky sexual activities, including sex with partners whose sexual history is unclear.
Hope this helps ...
