The vulva is a specialized area of skin that can encounter a wide variety of concerns, often superimposed in one individual, creating a complex clinical picture. Dr. Paula Zook is a national expert in the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions affecting the genital area, particularly in women. Dr. Zook’s background and training in gynecology and dermatology make her uniquely suited to address these concerns. This area may be affected by conditions seen elsewhere on the skin but presenting differently here, such as lichen sclerosus, lichen planus, psoriasis, and eczema. Additionally, the vulva may be affected by a variety of infections and other vaginal or gynecologic issues. Skin cancers of all types may occur here, and may appear different than in other areas of skin. To schedule a visit for vulvar concerns, please contact our office by phone, as this has special scheduling considerations.
