What Is Vulva (Genital) Skin Condition

Encompassing a range of disorders affecting the female external genitalia, these conditions can cause discomfort, pain, and emotional distress. They may be caused by infections, allergies, hormonal imbalances, or autoimmune disorders.


  • Itching: Persistent or intermittent itching in the vulvar area may vary in intensity, potentially causing significant discomfort and a strong urge to scratch. A worsening condition can lead to further irritation or even skin infections.
  • Redness: Inflammation and redness of the vulvar skin can be a result of irritation, allergic reactions, or infections. The affected area might be accompanied by warmth and tenderness, making the affected area sensitive to touch.
  • Pain: Discomfort or pain during urination, intercourse, or daily activities may occur due to inflammation or the presence of lesions in the vulvar area. Pain levels can range from mild to severe, affecting the individual’s quality of life.
  • Swelling: Enlargement or swelling of the vulvar region can be caused by inflammation, infection, or fluid accumulation. Swelling can be localised to specific areas of the vulva or generalised, affecting the entire vulvar region.
  • Lesions: Presence of blisters, ulcers, or lumps on the vulvar skin may indicate various skin conditions. Lesions can cause discomfort, itching, or pain and may sometimes bleed or ooze.


A comprehensive evaluation of the vulvar region and a medical history review conducted by an experienced dermatologist or gynaecologist. Laboratory tests or biopsies may be conducted to aid diagnosis and suggest suitable treatment options.
