Do I have dandruff down there?
It sounds like your mysterious flaky white substance is either dried discharge or dandruff. If you’re not itchy or smelly down there, you should be A-OK. Keep the area clean by splashing your vagina with warm—not hot—water when you shower. If it is dandruff and your skin down there seems dry, consider gently washing your pubic region with a dandruff shampoo to knock it out. And if it becomes itchy or stinky? Get yourself to your doc, quick. It could be a yeast infection, which is very treatable.
