Suggest remedies for peeling of finger nail

Hello, I have a disfigured thumb nail, the nail is peeling off half way through the thumb and the nail itself is bent(ie not smooth like it used to be). Someone said it might be a fungus. How do I treat it? It has been like this for about 4 months and I have not treates it in any way. Thank you God bless
