White Residue on Pubic Hair behind testicles

Hi there,
I've been searching for a while and came across a thread on here about this exact thing but it was closed with no solution. I've been doing hours and hours of research on the topic and just wanted to post so that if anyone had the same problem and was searching that they could find the answer easier.

So here are the symptoms that I've read from everyone and that I've experienced:
Whiteish/yellowish buildup on the pubic hair behind the testicles.
Possibly a strong odor to go along with it
Soap wont wash the residue off
Hair feels strange and rough
You can scrape the residue off with your nails
It grows back if you just shave the hair off

And here is what I've come up with
Trichomycosis Pubis

If you google image search it (without pubis) you'll find a bunch of images of people with the same thing in their armpits. Its a buildup of bacteria associated with areas with sweat glands. It's not dangerous from what I've read and not really anything to worry about although it is gross and you probably want to get rid of it.

According to the sites I've read about this on, shaving the pubic hair (or armpit hair) and then using antibacterial soap and/or benzoyl peroxide on the area will help to get rid of the bacteria. Keeping the area extra clean also helps.

here is a link to the emedicine page for it.

Hope this helps somebody. It sucked to go from one site to another for hours just to try and narrow it down and find out it was something simple.

Re: White Residue on Pubic Hair behind testicles

chainsawblade I strongly suspect that you have a fungus infection where you described. If it is, you can get rid of it easily with a baking soda solution. Mix a tsp of baking soda in a half glass of warm water and apply to the area several times a day. It may take a few days.
