Overview

Vulvitis is an itchy inflammation of the vulva, the soft folds of skin outside the vagina. It's not so much a condition as it is a symptom of certain diseases, infections, injuries, allergies or simply a reaction to an irritant or activity. The frustration is usually identifying the cause.

How Boston Children's Hospital approaches vulvitis

At Boston Children's Hospital, the staff at the Gynecology Program can help a young woman determine the cause of her vulvitis, help with treatment and also provide testing to rule out other serious conditions that could be causing the irritation.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
