Vulval irritation & pain

The vulva is the area around the opening of the vagina. It includes the labia (inner and outer vaginal lips) and the clitoris.

Vulval symptoms are common in women of all ages. These include itching, pain, soreness or a change in the skin colour and texture. There are some simple things you can do to look after your vulva, but if you have symptoms, you should see your GP.
