Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

This is unlikely to be a wart. It is only rarely spread during delivery. Also, you never had such warts. This is likely to be due to molluscum contagiousum infection which can appear singly and may look similar to a wart. Please read the below linked article:

Thank you!

Thank You I have read about this and she does have little bumps at the top of her thighs which are disappearing now however this 1 on the lip of her Virginia concerned me.
Thank You for your quick response

You are very welcome!!

I understand. Such a single lesion is unlikely to be a wart. You can safely relax.

Thank you!!!
