In brief: Did you injure it?

Check the nail - is there any particular swelling or pus-like material coming from anywhere near the nail? Are your toes rubbing against overly tight shoes? I am not sure why it is this way.
Would be concerned about possible infection. Warm? Tender? Swollen? Pus? Red streaking? One option is to see you podiatrist for evaluation & treatment.
