Hi
I have a problem and I want to google it but I don't know the word for it. To be honest I don't know the word in my mother language either.

this is the problem: besides my nails, sometimes a very small piece of nail -like a thin stick - grows. If I forget it and don't trim it using a nail cliper and it get pulled off by accident, It gets very painfull.

Is there anybody who knows a name for this stick-nail or the name of the problem?

I know I didn't give a good explanation but I don't know how else the tell it.
