It could be a vitamin prob, fungus or damage from trauma. Best to get it checked. Simple sample of nails may be enough for biopsy. Your local podiatrist will know

Depends

Inflammation
Depends on what you mean by "dips." If you have little hollowed-out pits or craters, these could be part of a skin inflammation such as psoriasis.

Dr. Ron Jones answered:

nail bed is burst and theres alot of pain?

Run around ?

Antibiotic
Sounds as if you may have had what is, as a dull "running around". The medical term is paronychia and it is a good thing that it "burst" as if you had a presented to the Dr. with this problem he would've opened it surgically. Soak in antiseptic soap such as Betadine. Use OTC antibiotic ointment. If redness or swelling persists or starts moving up pain see a doctor. Love to see picture.

My nail bed is flaking away from my fingernails?

If you have...

Open-uri20121201-32753-1ecqag5
artificial nails, remove them. A common cause is damage from the adhesive applied to hold the acrylics. Then, keep your nails away from soap & water and harsh chemicals as much as possible (wear gloves). Take biotin (one of the B vitamins) 5000 units per day. Use nail polish, either one color coat or 2 clear coats. Be patient, it may take several weeks to bring your nails back to normal.
