Thanks for using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your history.

Genital warts are usually infective in nature so your mom might be at risk of acquiring infection.

Both of them should consult dermatologist or venereal disease specialist to have detailed evaluation and management.

Until diagnosis is confirmed, they should avoid sexual relationship.

I hope I have addressed your concern.

Feel free to revert to me in case if you have further query.
