In brief: Dermatophytosis

The white debride is a dermatophyte or fungus.
This is not to be confused with white spots under the nail called leuckonichya or separation of the nail bed from the undersurface of the nail plate. Best to have examined by your podiatrist.

Also in the differential diagnosis would include bacterial colonization or subungual keratinazation.
