Problem & pain in nail

My mother is not getting continuous growth of nails. Her nails is coming part by part. There will be a very irresistible pain in that portion. Its in her right thumb only. She couldn't touch water also because some kind of pain when her (that particular nail) comes in contact with water. Extreme pain persists for a certain time, she is not following any medication for this particular disorder. I've attached a photo of her nail. What is this problem? Please suggest us a good medicine. She is suffering from diabetes & under medication.
