Vulval dermatology refers to disorders of the female genital skin. Conditions assessed and treated include disorders which cause itching or pain of the vulval skin including:
- Rashes of all types
- Chronic candidiasis
- Lichen sclerosus
- lichen planus
- Genital ulcers
- Skin cancer and mole checks
- Hidradenitis suppurativa
Dr Drummond assesses and coordinates management of vulval pain (vulvodynia, vestibulitis, dysaesthesia). These conditions often need multidisciplinary management.
If required, further referral may be made to physiotherapists, psychologists, gynaecologists or your general practitioner.
Lesions (“lumps and bumps”) and pigmentation of the vulval skin are also common reasons for referral.
Dr Drummond sees women with vulval problems in Canberra, Sydney and the NSW South Coast. These are private practices.
She also conducts a public outpatient vulval dermatology clinic at the Canberra Sexual Health Centre.
Women with vulval problems are given priority appointments.
