Vulval Skin Conditions

Vulval skin conditions can significantly impact one's quality of life, often presenting with a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. If you’re experiencing vaginal itchiness or irritation, pain during intercourse, or vaginal or labial burning, stinging, or stabbing sensations, you may be dealing with an underlying skin condition. Additionally, pain when urinating can be another distressing symptom.

Common Vulval Skin Conditions

Several conditions can cause these symptoms, including:

  • Eczema: This chronic skin condition can cause red, itchy, and inflamed skin, including in the vulval area.

  • Psoriasis: Known for causing red, scaly patches, psoriasis can also affect the vulval region, leading to discomfort and itching.

  • Lichen Sclerosus: This condition causes white, patchy skin that can tear easily, leading to pain and irritation.

  • Persistent Vulvo-Vaginal Candidiasis: Recurrent yeast infections can result in chronic itching, burning, and discharge.
