Hi @xty, bunions have varying severities with different underlying causes. Most happen in ladies with a known family history. To prevent worsening of mild cases, and to ease symptoms, use of broad toe box footwear, use of silicon toe spacers and avoidance of high heeled footwear is recommended. Cases which are more severe or refractory to management with the above-mentioned strategies would benefit from an orthopaedic consult. Let us know the progress of your recovery!

[email protected], Bunions can develop when your toes are pointing outwards. Choice of footwear is therefore important to prevent your bunions from worsening. I will suggest a less pointed shoe with more space for the toes at the front of the shoe. This will help prevent your toes from deviating outwards and your bunions from worsening. You might wish to consult your GP or podiatrist if your bunion is not getting better. Hope you get better soon.
