CareDownThere is not a health service. Our aim is to increase awareness and understanding of vulval disease in the Australian community. CareDownThere is an information website but is not intended as a self-help guide. It is a guide to help you recognize that you may have a problem for which you should seek help from a qualified health professional. We do not have doctors or health professionals available to respond to your specific difficulties.

Please consult your doctor for diagnosis and treatment of your condition.

This website has been established to provide information and does not provide clinical advice or professional services. If you are seeking help, or require urgent assistance and live in Australia, contact your local GP or other health professional.

The contents of CareDownThere reflect the commonest causes of vulval disease, however it is not comprehensive. It is important that you educate yourself and make informed decisions about your treatment but please discuss them with your doctor. Information on this web site should not replace necessary medical consultation with a qualified health professional to meet your own individual health or medical needs or those of your peers.

The CareDownThere team cannot answer specific questions relating to individual problems, recommend specific treatments for an individual with a vulval problem or provide a medical referral. The information provided by CareDownThere is with the understanding that CareDownThere is not engaged in rendering professional medical services or advice.

We can and do strongly recommend that you see your doctor regarding any questions or concerns that you may have about your condition.
