Hi. That could be only a temporary problem. It could be some nail infection that you have? Check out for infection. Maybe a lack of some vitamin, a deficiency of iron or something like that? Well this might just be some injury that you haven't even noticed. If it does not hurt it will probably just go away in short time. Wish you Good Health.
