Hi!
Yes, though rare, it is possible to get vulval ulcer with Crohn’s. Ulcers in this area are usually due to syphilis, herpes, chancroid, granuloma inguinale, and lymphogranuloma inguinale. Hence a STD panel should be undertaken which includes these STDs. There is another possibility—an allergic reaction to something (cream, lotion, razor, soap, tampon, sanitary pad). Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
