    Damaged Lunula

    So I had a bad habit of picking my fingers, and I some how was able to pick a piece of my nail, specifically where the lunula is. Only a small piece was picked off and now it's exposed. This happened on 6/4, only a day since I had it. I am washing it everyday, hoping it prevents infections, and covering my fingernail with a bandage so nothing touches it or irritates it. But I do have some concerns and questions.

    -Today(6/5) I took my bandage off and saw a bit of yellow discharge, at least that's what I believe it is, on the bandage.

    -If I keep doing what I'm doing, will it prevent anything serious happening?

    -How long will it take to heal?

    Thanks for any help I can get.
