WHAT IS A BUNION?
A bunion is a bony bump that forms along the base of your toe joint. The bony prominence formed can cause your big toe to press against your second toe.
The toe joint will stick out and appear enlarged with overlying skin being red and sore.
Bunions may be caused by the prolonged use of narrow shoes like high heels, or could be related to genetics.
Common signs symptoms include a bulge on the outside of your big toe, swelling, redness, calluses, persistent or intermittent pain.
