What are methods I can do at home to get rid of small bunion?

What are methods I can do at home to get rid of small bunion?

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.

If you have a bunion and want to get rid of it what can you do or use?

Treating bunions: There is no conservative treatment that will correct a bunion--so called bunion correction splints may ease some symptoms but will not "train" the toe to go straight. Wider shoes, a toe spacer, and tube foam are the most common ways to treat the pain and discomfort. Try those things to see if you can put off surgery for a while (or avoid it altogether!).

What can I do to improve/get rid of the tailor's bunions on my feet? What could I have done to have gotten them? (But I do wear pointy shoes often)

No Fun- Bunion.: Wearing pointy shoes "often" is probably the leading cause for the development of the tailor bunion in women and possibly men. Genetics and mechanics may also have a part in it, but shoes are the culprit. Changing the shoe style and fit may offer some relief, but the surgical correction is often needed. Without changing the shoe fit, even surgical correction may be disappointing over time.
