Bravo, Laura Dodsworth. Me and my vulva: women reveal all. F irst things first: the documentary Vaginas Channel 4 was not about vaginas — it was about vulvas. They were photographed up close and personal by the artist Laura Dodsworth with their owners invited to sit, look and talk about them afterwards as part of a project that follows on from similar ones she has done involving breasts and penises separately, for the avoidance of doubt. Presumably the powers that be thought calling it Vulvas would lead too many unsuspecting viewers to settle down in anticipation of a programme about the history of Swedish engineering.
Here are seven problems to look out for down below. Thrush is a fungal infection caused by an overgrowth of the yeast, Candida albicans, which is naturally found on the skin or in the gut. A small amount of the yeast can be found in the vagina too and this is mostly harmless, unless the yeast numbers grow. Symptoms of vaginal thrush can include itching or burning, a white discharge and stinging or burning while urinating. Once you see symptoms of vaginal thrush, you can quickly clear it up with an over-the-counter thrush cream available from the chemist, and after that, make sure that you use a soap substitute when cleaning the area, as well as ensure you are wiping in the right direction. Oral thrush requires a different treatment. Vulvovaginitis is when the vagina and vulva are inflamed which can be pretty painful and uncomfortable. Many things can cause this, such as moisture and dampness in the area, tight nappies or clothing, soaps and threadworms. Other signs your child might have vulvovaginitis include redness on the outside vaginal area, pain during or after she urinates, itchiness in the area and discharge from the vagina. When vulvovaginitis is mild, it can be treated by putting them in loose clothing and avoiding things like bubble baths and soaps.
