My baby's toenails are weird!

My baby's toenails are very hard on the corners, but only his big toes. Well, not his toe nails, but right where the skin is on the corner of the nail is hard. And now the skin surrounding it is peeling. It's almost his whole toe that is peeling. Is this normal? What is this?
