Bunion Anatomy And What To Know

Published on February 13, 2020

Bunion or hallux vagus is a medical condition where a bump forms at your big toe’s base. You will experience this problem when the bones in your feet move out of their original position.

The tip of the big toe will come in contact with your smaller toes. As a result, the big toe’s joint will stick out, causing your skin to become sore and red. It can limit movement in this region and cause discomfort, calluses or corns.

Several factors cause bunions in people – birth deformities, foot injuries and stress, and genes. Wearing poorly fit or tight shoes can worsen this medical condition. If bunion is changing the quality of your life, you should get in touch with a doctor to fix this problem!
