- Red, calloused skin on the inside of the big toe
- A bony bump
- Pain at the joint
- Big toe turned toward other toes
- Wear wide-toed shoes.Wear felt or foam pads to protect the bunion and spacers to separate toes.
- Surgery can realign the toe if the bunion continues to worsen.
There are many ways to treat this condition. Your doctor will discuss the best options for you.
