  Q: What solutions is there for bunions?

 
  A: updated (16/02/2012)

As you may know, a bunion is found on, or near, the joint of the big toe. Bunions, when viewed from the outside, are a fleshy lump, which usually becomes inflamed. Bunions angle the big toe's joint inward; meaning that the big toe rubs up alongside the second toe. It's currently believed that bunions are a result of genetics, and are due to the structure of the foot. While orthotics can help relieve the symptoms of bunions, they cannot cure the problem. The most common solution to relieve bunion pain etc. is an elasticated sleeve which is placed across the foot and contain a padded area to cover the bunion. Another solution is toe pads: they separate the toes to stop them rubbing up against each other.
