Get Rid of Bunions

There are a variety of symptoms that are associated with bunions. The most obvious symptom is the bulging bump that can be found outside the base of your big toe. You may also have swelling, redness, and sensitivity at the joint of your big toe. You may notice the skin at the base of your big toe thickening. Other symptoms include: corns or calluses developing where the two toes overlap, pain that is either persistent or intermittent, and your big toe having restrictive movement.

Generally bunions do not require medical attention, but there are some signs that mean you should visit your doctor or a specialized foot doctor to assist you. One sign is if you notice a lot of pain in your big toe or foot that is persistent. Another sign includes having a visible bump that is located on your big toe joint. You may also want to see a doctor if you have decreased movement in your foot or big toe, as well as having difficulty finding shoes that fit properly because of the bunion.

There are also some complications that may happen as a result of bunions. Bursitis is a painful condition that happens when the bursae, the small fluid-filled pads that cushion bones, tendons, and muscles, start to become inflamed. Another condition is “hammertoe”, where an abnormal bend happens in the middle joint of the toe and causes pain. This usually occurs in the toe next to the big toe. Metatarsalgia is a final complication as a result of bunions. This is a condition where a person will have pain and inflammation located in the ball of their foot.
