Can A Little Boy Have Bunions
Yes: It is possible for children to have bunions. Rather than being from poor shoe choices, these are genetic and/or biomechanical in etiology. It is best to have the child evaluated by a podiatrist of foot/ankle orthopedist that specializes in the treatment of pediatric foot disorders. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
None really: Unfortunately, there are no home remedies for bunions. Toe straightening devices simply don't work, in my experience. Wear roomy shoes and pad them to avoid irritation. When they become too painful, consider surgical correction. Make sure your surgeon realigns the bones. Simply shaving the bump usually allows reoccurrence over time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Pain may resolve.: A "bunion" at the base of the fifth toe is called a tailors bunion. It is usually just a prominent 5th metatarsal head which can enlarge with pressure/irritation from shoes. More comfortable/wider shoes often decrease the pain. If it is a significant problem see a Dr. for an X-ray. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What to do if i think i might have a small tailor bunion on my pinky toe. What can I do to help it?
Surgery, inserts.: Unfortunately, there are no braces or exercises to get rid of a tailor's bunion. If you elect to have surgery, there are several ways your surgeon could go about it. Depending on the angle of your bones (you'll need an x-ray), there are many different procedures to choose from to correct your foot. If you would rather, cortisone injections to the joint or orthotics can improve symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Some podiatrists claim next day walking and little pain after bunion surgery, but it seems most people experience lots of pain and given 6 wk recovery times. Does this depend on how bad the bunion is?
A lot depends...: On the severity of the bunion, the procedure performed and the doctor preforming it! almost all of my patients walk the same day as the surgery. I am also shocked that many say they have little to no pain. Most spend 5 to 6 weeks in a surgical shoe, then back to regular shoes as tolerated.
