Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

First of all it is important to confirm whether the ulcers on the vulva are due to genital herpes or not. Herpes presents with itchy painful blisters which open up and scab over. The only way of ruling it out is by getting yourself tested for genital herpes. Laboratory tests include: culture of the virus, direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) studies to detect virus, skin biopsy, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to test for presence of viral DNA.

The other possibilities for such genital lesions are vaginal ulcers, sexually transmitted diseases like chancroid, syphilitic ulcers, lymphogranuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale or boils.

Get it examined from a gynecologist to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment is dependent on confirmation of diagnosis.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
