The cause of bunions on your feet is not yet clear. Bunions refer to bony bumps on the joint that is found at the base of the big toe.
- Closed-toe shoes we wear during the cold winter months can lead to severe pain. The shoes rub against the bunion causing inflammation and pain.
- Women should avoid high-heeled shoes and shoes that are pointy and crowd toes together.
- Instead people should go for shoes that are wide at the toes to avoid irritation and pain.
Along with wearing proper shoes, other ways to cope with bunion pain include foam- or gel-filled padding; orthotics; anti-inflammatory medications and injections for bursitis, nerve irritation and joint irritation, according to the ACFAS.
