In brief: Toe nail

I suggest you see a podiatrist and have x-ray taken.
Sometimes you may be looking at a subungal exostosis. This is a small cartilage spur that can grow on the boney surface of the toe under the nail. It causes pressure on the nail with shoewear.It is common and very treatable.

The piece of nail needs to be removed so that you do not get a return of the infection.
