Vulval ulceration. View of white, raised ulcers on the vulva, inside the labia minora (small hairless folds of skin covering the clitoris and vagina). It is not known what caused the ulceration. Ulcers are open sores on the skin or on a mucous membrane that result in the destruction of surface tissue. They may be shallow or deep and crater shaped, and are often inflamed and painful. Ulcers usually heal by themselves if left alone. A doctor may prescribe corticosteroid drugs to reduce the swelling and antibiotics (antibacterial drugs) to speed up the healing process.
