Can you grow more warts if you cut open your wart?

I hate my warts and certainly don't want to get any more.

Yes warts can spread. Do not mess with the one that you have. Go to your local drug store and get some medicine to put on it to make the wart go away. Usually if you cut it open you will get them all over the area where the other one is.

My dad once cut open a plantar's wart on his foot and said it looked like dozens of black hooks inside, he pulled them all out with a pair of tweezers and it never came back. and we threw the tweezers away.

Yes. If the skin around the area is damp, it can increase from one wart to more. But if you have cleaned the immediate area (within 2-3 inches of the wart) with alcohol, it will not spread. Then you could pop it if you liked.

Don't cut your warts. They grow under the skin, also, and need to removed properly. Try Compound W, or see your doctor for proper removal.

Yes there is a chance to appear the warts again even if we cut off it from our body. After cutting the warts you should be careful to heal the wound by using a good antiseptic cream or such medicines and also take the medicines which can provide a good immune capacity to your body.

You can grow more warts if you cut open your wart. Warts are contagious so if you cut one open, you will risk spreading it to other areas of your body.

I accidentally cut my wart open! I don't have any alcohol! I'm going to wash my hands 50 times with soap though. Will that help at least?
