do nails grow thicker after being crushed or falling off
 
I had a nail that got slammed in a car door a while back. It had completely fallen off after a while and the skin under it smelled horrible. The nail grew back but it was a bit thicker than the rest of my nails and has an extra bit of skin or something growing underneath the nail which will separate from it if the nail is filed. Is this normal for a nail to do? If not, what would be an easy way to fix this problem??
