Bunion are progressive deformities, they always get worse.

Avoid shoes with pointed toes that press toes together unnaturally. High heels exacerbate the problem by putting more pressure on toes.

In brief: It is very hard

Avoid direct contact with warts.
This includes your own arts.Keep your feet clean and dry. Change your shoes and socks daily.Don't go barefoot in public areas. Wear sandals or flip-flops in public pools and locker rooms.Don't pick at warts. Picking may spread the virus.Don't use the same file, pumice stone or nail clipper on your warts as you use on your healthy skin and nails. Thank you.

In brief: Good question

Wear roomy, comfortable shoes that provide plenty of space for your toes.
Padding and taping. Your doctor can help you tape and pad your foot in a normal position. Shoe inserts. Padded shoe inserts can help distribute pressure evenly when you move your feet, reducing your symptoms and preventing your bunion from getting worse. Using sling splint to relief the pressure on the bunion. Thanks.

In brief: Orthotcs, good shoes

In a flexible foot that tends to flatten when standing, an orthotic can help reduce the hypermobility in the forefoot and slow down the bunion formation.
Good athletic shoes with an arch could help also.
