Burning Sensation In Vulva

Burning sensation in the vulva can occur due to dehydration and dryness in that region. Using highly scented or cosmetic products containing chemicals in the vulvar region disturbs the pH and causes irritation with a burning sensation in the vulva. Skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis affect the skin, and it can spread to the vulva, causing a burning sensation. Bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract infection, and genital herpes can also cause it.
