White coating on some pubic hairs

Hello forum users,

I have a problem which I thought I'd address on here before taking an embarassing trip to the doctor. A few months ago I noticed that I had a small section of pubic hairs above my testicles that did not appear normal. After taking a closer look they appear to have some sort of a white/yellowish coating on them from the root to the tip. It seems to be generalized around a certain patch of area. At first I thought maybe I let soap dry on that area possibly or not washing completely. I scrubbed for quite some time and it would not come off. I ended up shaving all of the hairs off thinking the problem would be gone, yet when the hairs re-grew the problem came back again. I am not sure sure what would cause this and whether it's something serious of any nature? There does not appear to be any rash of any sort and I don't think the area is any more itchy then normal? Has anyone else experienced this and can steer me in the right direction as to the nature of this problem.

Thank you

Re: White coating on some pubic hairs

could be Hidradenitis Suppurativa or, more likely, Trichomycosis axillaris.
