My son has a wart on his thumb, I am thinking it is a planters wart. It is a big bump that has little seeds looking things in it. I have been freezing it every night, its turned black.. is this normal? edit- the wart turned black not his finger if that makes a difference.. sorry for the confusion

Get some wart medication from the drug store--coat it, then cover it with duct tape overnight.  It will kill the wart, and peels off--I've done it to my kids' warts plenty of times.. Oh, btw, a plantar wart would be on the bottom of your foot, not your thumb--just FYI.

Just before warts disappear on their own, they may turn black

yes it is normal for it to turn black...that is the dead skin and it means the wart is dying and getting ready to fall off...
