Vulval Conditions

What are vulval conditions?

Common symptoms of vulval conditions include pain, itching or burning. Some women may notice skin changes or lumps in the vulval area. These symptoms may be in the context of other skin conditions (eczema, psoriasis, lichen scleorosus) or conditions related specifically to the vulva (vulvodynia, vaginismus).
