Please see: Please see your dermatologist for evaluation and to discuss treatment options. The vaccine usually helps before wart appearance not after.

Mode of transmission: HPV vaccine would not help. The important question is how did a 9 year old girl got anal warts. I think your friend needs to discuss this with the pediatrician as soon as possible. It is a medical-legal consequence if those are really due to a HPV-related infection. Your dermatologist should have acted on this as well as your pediatrician.
