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).

"I was delighted to have been invited to join GP locum chambers. I enjoy great peer support from my colleagues via our monthly meetings, which has been helpful to me discussing some specific things that arise with GP locum working.

I have found LocumDeck really straightforward to use and immensely helpful; in particular invoicing and the pension forms A and B has cut down my admin time dramatically, which I’m pleased about. The support from NASGP's membership support manager, is excellent, friendly and knowledgeable.

NASGP membership brings with it a host of benefits, including a range of excellent materials to draw on for support and learning. I would recommend NASGP chambers to anyone working or thinking of working as a GP locum."
