missing lunula

i constantly pick my nails and have a issue. this has happened before and i get so mad that this happens. The nail part by my cuticle stops growing and starts to peel off the finger so i pick it and then i miss the top part of my nail. imagine you have a whole nail then the part close to your finger and cuticle is missing and its puffed up skin. this is the 3rd time its happened and this time its bad. i dont know what to do shoud i see a doctor or let it heal but i dont see how it will heal. On my other finger its starting to peel which makes me even more angry. this is embaressing and i wear a bandaid to hide it. ill post a picture. what should i do!?
