bunion by pinky toe
A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe, it is not typically found on the joint at the base of the little toe or pinky toe. A bunion is caused by a misalignment of the bones in the foot, where the big toe pushes against the other toes, causing the joint to protrude outward. This misalignment can cause the surrounding tissue, including the skin and the bursa, to become inflamed and painful. As the condition worsens, the big toe may also begin to angle toward the other toes, a condition called hallux valgus.
A bunion can cause pain and discomfort, making it difficult to walk or wear shoes, and can also lead to other foot problems such as hammertoes and calluses. Treatment options for bunions include wearing comfortable shoes, orthotics, physical therapy and in severe cases surgery. If you notice any abnormality on your pinky toe joint, it's always recommended to consult with a doctor to determine the cause and the best course of treatment for your individual case
