Review Article: Vulvitis and Vaginitis in the Child Population

Atit Tajmiati


Vulvovaginitis is a gynecological problem that usually occurs in prepubertas girls. The presence of vulvitis and vaginitis in the child population can occur separately or a whole (vulvovaginitis). The symptoms and signs of vulvitis are the presence of itching, dysuria and erythema of the vulva. The presence of discharge is an indication of vaginitis.

Increased incidence of vulvovaginitis in children is a combination of anatomical and behavioral factors. Where, the anus is located closer to the vestibule / introitus, so poorer perineal hygiene causes bacterial contamination or irritation of the faecal material to become easier and more frequent.
