Bunion is a painful, bony hump that is formed at the base of your big toe. It is usually formed at the joint of the big toe that bends when you walk. On every movement, the body’s weight rests on it that causes it to hurt. Bunions are usually formed when the toe is misaligned and cause the toe to move towards the second toe and sometimes either overlap or tuck beneath it. This disturbs the normal profile of your foot.
Bunions are usually small when they start but they can get worse as time passes. This can also cause joint inflammation which can be very painful. It makes the joint red and swollen. And as bigger as the bunion gets, it becomes more painful and causes a lot of difficulty in walking.
