Vulval Skin Disorders

21st April 2011 by Louise Hudman

This is a good guideline to have a quick read through as it is a good summary of vulval skin disorders. There is a really useful patient hand out on vulval skin care on page 17.

Ask the obvious questions and also about sexual problems, cervical cytology history, immune deficiency, any pads or tampons or condoms used, any family history of autoimmune conditions, any atopy and incontinence (which aggravates or causes it).

Consider screening for TFTs, diabetes and STDs and also ferritin in dermatitis (20% may have a deficiency and correction can alleviate symptoms).

"Work as GP locum provides me both flexibility and autonomy together with great job satisfaction. However, there are some complexities one needs to address in starting out and doing everything right.

I've generally found answers to any issues I've had on the NASGP website – an excellent repository of very relevant information. The blog and magazines alone are almost worth the small costs of membership. The fact that NASGP is run by motivated fellow GPs gives me confidence in their guidance and advice.

LocumDeck makes my running things as a self-employed GP almost effortless - I don't think I would want to work without it. Invoicing is streamlined and the website is very user-friendly. After a busy week at work, the last thing you want is to spend hours on business admin. LocumDeck is a real timesaver.
