Psoriasis is a relatively common dermatosis where there is an abnormally rapid epidermal cell proliferation resulting in scaling and erythematous plaques which can affect any area of the skin. Involvement of the vulva is usually bilateral and itch is common. The vagina is not affected. Psoriatic skin lesions are often found at other sites. Treatment is with topical corticosteroid, tar or calcipotriol preparations.
