Leg - Forefinger wound

Hi. My leg's forefinger is hurting me. That is,the edge of the nail and the skin covering the edge is somewhat the pain occurs. When I touch it, or when I cut nails(not too deep) blood starts to flow. After some days, that edge skin is tightened or it is so dry. If I try to remove it some liquid is coming out.
