What to do when bottom half of nail has been ripped off?

I have tried googling it and the answers I get are about if half (top/side) of a nail has been removed but Idk what to do when it’s the bottom.

I dropped something heavy on my nail which caused it to crack and (I know

I’m dumb but I picked at it ok?) the bottom half has been removed. So the part closest to my nail bed to about half way up is gone and the flesh under it is exposed but the top half is completely intact. 

I disinfected with alcohol and put a bandaid on but it hurts and idk what to do so

That it grows back okay since the top remains. 

Any idea, has this ever happened to anyone else or literally just me?
