How do I get relief from a bunion?

Preventing BUNION

A slight deformity of the foot can result in a bunion, which is the irritation and inflammation of the joint at the base of the big toe. When the disorder develops, the big toe overrides with the next toe(s) and the joint protrudes. A bunion is often subjected to constant rubbing, which makes walking painful and difficult.

To prevent this, always wear correctly fitting shoes.

Avoid high-heeled and pointed shoes.
