i bit my nail a few months ago, ever since then the edge has become very dry and rough.

there is no "puss" etc like the symptoms would suggest, its simply hardened and rough, and the nail doesn't really grow.

here is a picture, its not manky like many images i have looked. it really is just all dry, hard skin :(
