do you have any other areas on your body that have lost color or turned white?

no. I do not have any other areas of my body that have lost color. I am having trouble reading your post. I t is almost completely blocked at the top of my screen.
sorry about that
are you white or african american?
Did you receive my reply?
Some of the most common things that may cause this - lichen sclerosus, vitiligo (that's why I was asking about the other areas of the body), lichen simplex chronicus and vulval candidiasis.
Some of the less common things that may cause this - dysplasia (abnormal precancerous cells), cancer, lymphedema, tinea cruris (jock itch), psoriasis, furuncle,folliculitis, lichen planus, epidermal inclusion cyst, contact dermatitis.
I cannot read what you are saying. It is blocked by the add at the top. any suggestions on how to remove it?
What I'm going to do is change the format...it will be a Q&A format rather than a chat...maybe that will help.
I have copied and pasted the replies you were not able to read...hopefully you can see them here..

What really needs to be done to make an accurate diagnosis is a vulvar biopsy to narrow this list and have the appropriate treatment initiated.
