lunula peeled off

First of all sorry for my english

I had a very big lunula in my thumb. I saw the other day that one part was sticked out. I lifted it and completly disapeared. It was red and swollen. Now, after cleaning the area and 7 days after the injury, what i can see is only formed skin and it is begining to get a little hard. I know that what I removed was the leading edge of the matrix where the cell plates are born. I am now having a lot of stress in my life and that is why i am constantly picking my nails. Is the lunula going to born again? What can I do or use to solve this damage? Thanks in advance for your help!
