Hi, thanks for using E-extension. I have included some links above that contain information about Sclerotinia, or white mold. Members of the tomato family, which includes tomatillos, are susceptible to this disease. Do the pictures in these links bear any resemblance to what you are seeing on your plants?
If not, you might want to submit some pictures so we can help you better.
Thanks, Nicole
