Possible Effects on Baby: Baby can get laryngeal papillomas (benign tumors on the vocal cords) from passing through an infected birth canal.

Signs and Symptoms of Infection: Skin tags or warts that can be small or large, soft or hard, raised or flat, single or in clusters like cauliflower.

Treatment: Usually delay treatment until after delivery but may be removed in pregnancy if absolutely necessary. If large enough to block the birth canal, you may need a cesarean section.

Testing: Let your health care provider know if you think that you have warts.
