In brief: Injury or fungus

Either ay the best thing would be to have the toenail removed.

In brief: Onychomycosis

This is likely a fungal infection of the toenail (onychomycosis) -- treatment options include medications (taken once daily for three months), seeing a podiatrist to have the nail addressed, or the use of otc vicks vapo rub (there is anecdotal evidence to support the use of vicks vapo rub twice daily for several months to reduce the coarseness of the nail).
