Genital wart above vagina, redness. Does she have something?

Hello. My girlfriend found what seems to be a genital wart on her upper pubic area today (above her vagina ). Yesterday I looked at that area and she did not have it, but now she does. It seems to be red-ish color. Seems like a pimple you would get on your face. Is there a chance she has something? She is my first, so I did not give her this. Approximately how long ago might have she been infected if the wart appeared today?

Hi chris,

Thanks for writing in.

The description given by you can be of viral warts or molluscum contagiosum.
Both are caused by viral infection and transmitted by skin to skin contact.

Incubation period can vary from weeks to months.
There is nothing to be worried about they are treatable by office procedure.

A visit to dermatologist will confirm the diagnosis and will suggest proper treatment.
