In brief: Tailor's bunion
Sounds like you have a tailor's bunion.
This is a structural deformity. Wider, supportive shoes can help, but surgical correction may be needed. This procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis. See your foot surgeon. Dr l.

In brief: Bunionette Surgery
Surgery is very effective in correcting a tailor's bunion, bunionette.
Not only is a portion of the 5th metatarsal head enlargement removed, more importantly, the 5th metatarsal can be realigned in a proper position in order to the make the foot narrower.

In brief: Surgery, inserts.
Unfortunately, there are no braces or exercises to get rid of a tailor's bunion (by your pinky).
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 procedures to choose from to correct your foot. If you would rather, cortisone injections to the joint or orthotics can improve symptoms.

In brief: Tailors Bunion
Sounds like a tailors bunion if just below little toe.
Like a regular bunion there are many ways of fixing it so x-rays will be needed and your surgeon will determine what is right for you. If its not painful leave it alone.
