Vulvitis

Vulvitis is simply an inflammation of the vulva, the soft folds of skin outside the vagina. This is not a condition but rather a symptom that results from a host of diseases, infections, injuries, allergies and other irritants. Diagnosing and treating this condition can be frustrating, because it is often difficult to determine the specific cause of the irritation.
