Big toenail lifted partially from nailbed

My big toenail lifted on the right side -- now it's bleeding and theres some "pus" coming out from under the nail. I also have a horizontal line (deep crease) across the tonail close to the foot (like it was bent back)...

I am a police officer and had to wear "combat" boots while working Mardi Gras this year, everyday for two 1/2 weeks... could wearing the boots have caused the toe to separate partially from the nailbed?

I haven't done anything else to cause trauma to the toenail...
Thanks!
