The vulva comprises the external genital organ in women, with the surface covered by skin.
Itching, which is an unpleasant sensation, of the vulval skin is a very common symptom in women, and most women will experience vulval discomfort, soreness or pain at some time in their life.
This is a very common reason for women to seek medical help, but too often women endure this pain and sexual dysfunction with no definite diagnosis.
