A bunion is a deformity of the base joint of big toe with a bony bump forming on the joint at the base of your big toe. It forms when your big toe pushes against your next toe, forcing the joint of your big toe to get bigger and stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore. The deformity may cause the foot to rub on shoes, which may cause inflammation and pain.


  • A bulging bump on the outside of the base of your big toe
  • Swelling or soreness around your big toe joint
  • Persistent or intermittent pain


  • Shoes that are too tight, too narrow or too pointed are more susceptible to bunions.
  • Inherited structural foot defect may increase the formation of Bunions


  • Shoe selections: They should have a wide toe box — no pointy toes, no heels — and there should be space between the tip of your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
  • Your shoes should conform to the shape of your feet without squeezing or pressing any part of your foot.
