Vulvodynia is defined as pain in the vulvar area, including the vestibular area. It may not be associated with any visible signs (redness) or discharge. Sometimes the “pain” is perceived as itching. When there are signs of inflammation (redness, swelling) or changes in discharge, this may be an indication of infection. However, this symptom complex may not respond to typical anti-fungal or anti-bacterial medications.
