Vulvar Itch: Phobia of vaginal examinations and the Dermatologist


I have had problems with itching whilst I am asleep in the vulval and anal area for the past couple of years. I have been cleared of any vaginal infection by my GP and was referred to a Dermatologist. The problem is I have a phobia of any vaginal penetration by the Doctor (the swab was a big enough ordeal).

Can anyone explain to me what the physical examination by a Dermatologist entails? Will they need to use a speculum, or otherwise do an invasive examination?

if anyone has been to a Dermatologist re: vulval dermatitis please help!
