You may be having onychogryphosis or fungal infection of the toe nail....antifungal treatment may be required... nail avulsion can be done too. But without actually examining the lesion it will be difficult to comment. Better to get your self examined by a qualified dermatologist.

Require pictures for opinion. Anyways with the description it requires surgical procedure to correct that.
