When you have a mild or severe bunion, the pain that comes with wearing footwear over it can be a hindrance to your quality of life. Here are several steps you can take to help alleviate any pain and prevent your bunion from getting worse.
Make sure you wear appropriate footwear. High heels, shoes that are too tight on the toes, and ill-fitting shoes can exacerbate a bunion. Stretching your shoes or cutting an “X” on the shoe where the bunion is located can alleviate any discomfort. A pad can be added to the shoe for additional comfort, or a bunion pad can be placed over the bunion for protection.
