See a podiatrist: This sounds like an issue beyond self-help measures such as "bathroom surgery'. The thickened skin may be callusing over a bone spur, which might need to be addressed.

See below: Skin does not usually thicken under a toenail unless there. Has been trauma or a disease process. See a podiatrist for treatment.
