I can see that there is a traumatic crack and inflammation of the nail

You need to take a tylenol once daily at night to reduce the inflammation and pain

You should apply Bacitracin ointment available otc on the nail and place a normal bandage around it with the sticky side of the bandage on the skin and NOT NAIL.

You can take Biotin supplements from the health shop to make your nail stronger.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.
