Can children get genital warts?

A Answers (1)

  • In very rare cases, children may get genital warts if their mothers are infected while they're pregnant. In those cases, babies may develop warts in their throats, which may lead to airway obstruction and other health issues. Because of this, it's important for a woman to get tested and treated for genital warts before becoming pregnant or early in pregnancy.
