I am concerned that your daughter who is only 2 years old has warts especially in her genital area. Are you sure that she has warts because this would be very unusual in such a young child? More likely is that she has a viral skin condition called molluscum. Molluscum is very common in this age group. This rash takes a very long time to clear up often as long as 18 months, but it usually clears up by itself without any treatment. Look up more about 'Molluscum' on Google.
