A bunion is a bony bump in the big toe. It's a foot deformity that can be very painful. It is typically the result of wearing shoes that are too small or narrow in the toe area. The pressure from tight-fitting shoes causes the bunion. Many individuals with bunion find relief wearing larger, more comfortable shoes. When self-help treatment doesn't relieve the pain, the podiatrist may recommend bunion removal. Bunion removal is a surgical procedure that corrects the deformity.
Corns are another common foot problem that results from wearing tight-fitting shoes. The abrasion from the foot or toes rubbing against the inside of the shoe causes the skin to grow thicker. Corns can be irritating and painful, depending on where it occurs on the feet. Your podiatrist will recommend the best treatment option for corn removal, which may include trimming, soaking the affected area in a chemical solution, or footpads.
Hammertoe is a foot deformity that causes a toe to become bent upward. It can be especially painful when it rubs against the inside of the shoe, and callouses, or corns develop. Your podiatrist may recommend non-surgical treatment options like wearing more comfortable footwear. If the problem persists, surgery is an option to straighten the toe.
