About Us

The CareDownThere team is made of up a group of Australian health professionals with an interest and experience in vulval problems. The group includes dermatologists, gynaecologists, a pain management specialist,a sexual health physician, a psychologist and a pelvic floor physiotherapist.

The members of the team have all given their time voluntarily to write the content of this website. Their aim is to provide useful information to help people who have vulval problems.

Care Down There is an independent Australian resource. It is proudly sponsored by Epiderm, an Australian company devoted to promoting research into skin disorders and developing health information initiatives for professionals and the public.


The CareDownThere team cannot answer any specific questions you might have about your own individual problem, recommend treatment for you or refer you to a doctor.

However we strongly recommend that you do see your own doctor if you have a vulval problem.


CareDownThere was founded by Dr Gayle Fischer and Dr Jennifer Bradford, members of the Australasian College of Dermatologists and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
