I've got one of these wee sharp things protruding at the edge of my fingernail. It is attached to the skin surrounding the nail.

Anyone know what it is and what it is called?

That's the one. Thank you. I knew the Fediverse wouldn't let me down.

It is the sort of thing that is nearly impossible to search for online.

I hate them, so irritating, I don't know what they're called but I usually just pull them out along with the skin. It then hurts for a few days after.

Ah no, learned that lesson. They have to be cut with clippers.

Funny thing though, only happens about 2/3 times per year and only ever on the three middle fingers.

Yes, it takes a lot of willpower to resist doing that. 😃
