Bunions

A bunion is a very common foot condition that affects around 15% of women in the UK. They are more prevalent in women than men, due to female footwear choices. Bunions, which are medically termed hallux valgus, are thought to be hereditary and exasperated by wearing high heels or uncomfortable, ill-fitting shoes. They can also be triggered by other medical conditions, so getting medical advice is always recommended.

 The main sign of a bunion is a bony bump at the base of the big toe which points towards the other toes. Bunions can alter the shape of your foot, which may make it difficult for shoes to fit properly and in severe cases, they can affect the way you walk. They can be very painful and due to the bunion rubbing against shoes, they can also cause calluses and sore skin and may even cause overlapping of the big toe and second toe.
