Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
I am sure there is some error in typing your query.
Vulva is the female external genitalia and scrotum is the male external genitalia !
Where do you have these lesions ?
Please upload pictures of the area so that I can give you my opinion regarding what they are likely to be.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
THEY DO NOT APPEAR TO BE WARTS.

Detailed Answer:
The pictures are not that clear.
However, from the limited evaluation that I can make, they do not appear to be warts.
It appears to a local skin condition, such as lichen or psoriasis.
I think you should have a SPecialist opinion at the earliest to confirm the diagnosis with a swab / biopsy.
Take care.
