In brief: Just watch it

The next time you need a wart removed, get with something scientific rather than a "pop" remedy that looks like an internet prank.
Any irritant can stir up a wart so that the immune system removes it. If it gets red / hot / infected, get with a scientific physician. Leave it open and see what happens. All warts are somewhat contagious. Best wishes.
