Bunions. I've had them for years and they haven't caused any issues. But now I'm getting one on the inside side of my foot. Can I get rid of them?
I have bunions on both feet but mostly right. Is there a way go get rid of it or make it look less noticeable. & My feet are darker than rest of body?
SURGERY: If you want to "get rid of it", surgery is the only option If you see a podiatrist, go to abfas. Org to find a board-certified doctor in your area. Good luck.
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.
Why are my feet always so red and bruised like? I have no medical issues but do have bunions. How can I fix them and get rid of the redness
Bunion surgery: Is the redness where the bunions are (near your big toe joint)? Do they hurt? Have you tried wearing wider shoes? If this is still a painful issue, then you would need to consider bunion surgery. Bunion surgery is very effective, but is not to be taken lightly. It will take a minimum of 6 weeks to heal enough so you can walk with an athletic shoe and several more weeks for other shoes.See 2 more doctor answers
Looking for a podiatrist/orthopedic specialist advice. Does a foot splint for the big toe get rid of mild bunions or prevent it from becoming worse?
Unlikely: 'splints' for hallux vagus deformity and bunions have little effect on natural history or progression. Bunion pads, wider shoes, nsaids may help. Deforming forces which result in hv often progress. See an ors w/ foot/ankle fellowship training or your local orthopedist. Best of luck!See 3 more doctor answers
Bunion: I would see a board certified podiatric surgeon or orthopod. Have xrays and an evaluation. I would try and treat it without surgery first. If its still painful that surgery would be a an option. If your not having pain I would not have surgery. You also want to make sure your have a orthotic made and wear a proper sized shoe.
Several things: The tendency to develop a bunion is often hereditary. However, poor foot support, improper fitting shoes, trauma, or many musckuloskeletal or neurological conditions all can be factors. The only way to "get rid" of a bunion is with surgical correction. The extent of the surgery needed depends on the severity of the deformity as well as any other contibutory conditions. Shoes/orthotics may help.See 4 more doctor answers
Surgical correction: Taylors bunion is corrected in several different ways depending upon the exact cause. Sometimes simply removing the bony prominence will do. Other times the bone must be cut and repositioned. Your podiatrist will evaluate your x-Ray and be able to decide what is best to correct your particular situation.See 1 more doctor answer
I have been told by a podiatrist that the only way I can permanently get rid of corns is to have bunion surgery. Is this true?
Corns: Well the usually way to permanently rid of a corn is to remove the bony prominence. In some instances a proper offloading orthotic will reduce the corn and pain that surgery can be delayed or no longer needed.See 1 more doctor answer
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!).See 2 more doctor answers
