Vulvodynia affects women of all age and ethnic origin. It triggers an inordinate burning or itching sensation in external female genitalia like the vulva, clitoris or in extreme cases the vaginal vestibule. It affects general lifestyle, making it extremely uncomfortable for the subject to exercise or have intercourse. Usually however, Vulvodynia only comes with a sharp pain that goes undiagnosed most of the times. There aren't any fool proof remedies for Vulvodynia. The condition can occur due to a variety of reasons ranging from nerve damage, trauma, sexual abuse, hereditary reasons and allergies or infections.
