Irritation of the vulva - Definition


Definition


The vulva is the external part of the female genital tract. It includes the labia majora and minora and the vagina. Irritation of the vulva is common among women. It may take the form of itching, pain, swelling, or redness. Irritation of the vulva may be due to a fungus, an infection, or skin disease. We speak of vulvitis if there is only localized inflammation of the vulva, and its progression is usually toward healing, but can sometimes lead to inflammation of the vagina which is then called vulvovaginitis, and whitish discharge can sometimes appear. Vulvitis may also affect girls whose urinary hygiene is not yet fully acquired which promotes local inflammation. Vulvar hygiene and skin protection can calm or prevent irritation of the vulva.
