In brief: Good shoes/supports

Bunions are structural deformities secondary to abnormal foot function.
These are progressive deformities. They don't get better, they only get worse. The best you can do is to slow down the progression of the deformity. Good shoes and supports help. You may want to consider custom orthotics. Discuss options with your foot care specialists. Dr l.

In brief: Options

A bunion is a progressive disorder which usually has a genetic component.
Bunions may also result from trauma or due to a biomechanical abnormality. Prevention options include the use of bunion toe spacers, strapping, orthoces, and use of more comfortable shoes.

In brief: Bunion surgery.

Unfortunately, there are no braces or exercises to get rid of a bunion.
If you elect to have it surgically removed, 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.
