    Lunula tore. Bubble of flesh protruding out above nail. Incredibly gross and painful.

    A couple of days ago, I noticed the Lunula on my thumbnail was dry and a bit split, so I peeled at it, and ended up getting the dry part off. It didn't hurt. Felt like I was just peeling off dry nail.

    Didn't think anything of it until I woke up the next day to the wierdest thing. What seems like a bubble of skin has pushed up through the hole in the Lunula and is growing atop the nail. It looks horrible, but worse it really hurts. Feels like raw skin, extremelt sensitive to the touch. I'm keeping it clean with peroxide, polysporin and bandaids but it's been 3 days with no progress being made. The bubble has not gone down and my whole thumb is throbbing from the pain.

    Someone help please! How do I care for this?
