This is a very difficult question that you are asking. You do not mention your daughter's age.I am sorry to have to inform you that warts in the mouth in children are usually caused by the human papilloma virus also known as HPV. These warts are usuallly caused by sexual abuse. Your child must be seen by a doctor and a proper diagnosis should be made and if necessary social services must be notified.
